Here are some pictures of recent pages, the new cover of my book and also my "finale" pages.
Art Journal Cover - A photo from my trip to West Virginia makes a great cover, don't you think ?
Page One - "Which way does the wind blow ?"- Done October 2007
"Friends in the Wood" - A recent page celebrating my new friend Sonia and our time at "Camp"
"We Laugh" - A recent page done for me and he - I love this shot of us !
"What Do You See When You Look in The Mirror ?" - A recent ode to PMS
"Letting Go" - Still working on this, big time ! (The concept, not the page !)
Finale Two Page Spread
I used a sheet of the rubbing and resist paper I made for the GPP Street Team Crusade #21 for the background and quoted the lyrics from the Coldplay song "Twisted Logic" for "The End".
The background is another rubbing/resist paper. I recently came across the same picture of this gorgeous red head that I had used on "Page One" in an old Oprah magazine and had to use it again on page 54, "You go backwards, but then, you go forwards again". The end of something is always the beginning of something else, right ?
So there you have it ! Mon chef d'oeuvre - my masterpiece ! (Mistresspiece ?) And now on to the new journal. I have bought it. It's empty pages lie on my worktable full of possibility! The same format as this one (a field watercolor book) because I love the idea of eventually having a whole series of the same sized book on my studio shelves, filled with little pieces of me ! Good job, Kimbo !
