Beverly's Book

The second book is Beverly's and the theme is Life is a Metaphor. Had a bit of a hard time choosing two metaphors that I liked, but I had fun with the whole process.

Round Robin

I'm in an Altered Book Round Robin with a local group of artists. This is my first RR and it's been a great experience, so far. Only on my second book. I will be starting my third this week.

Here are some pictures of the two I've worked in so far. Jeanette's was the first one. Her theme is Mermaids. We are to do two spreads in each book. I hated covering up the pages in this book. It's a very old book in a series about mythology. I was enjoying some of the content. Got side tracked reading.

It's been way too long since I posted here. Life just gets too crazy sometimes. Seems like I never have enough time for anything. Especially art. It's been weeks since I've had a chance to sit at my table and really make some art.
Ever since I returned from my week long trip to CA I've been too busy. I spent 5 days helping my granddaughter make her Halloween costume. And I haven't even seen it on her. They said they took pictures, so hopefully I'll get to see it. Maybe even put some pictures up here.
It was a lot of work, but teaching my granddaughter some sewing basics was worth all the work we put into the costume. She really enjoyed sewing. I'm so glad. Because I discovered it at about the same age and made almost all my clothes in high school.

So today I'm heading out to my studio. I will finish putting some things away, take some photos and make some art. I hope!! I would truly like to spend the whole weekend out there.
Then I would have some art to post here.
Wish me luck!
