More Books

Here are a couple more books I've created. They were gifts for two of my friends. One has her initials on the cover. The other has a little bit of art pertaining to "Tea" on every page. She is going to have different friends work in the book, with a Tea theme.

On the Beach

We're here on the beautiful Oregon coast today. We're off to go tidal pooling. I hope we figured these tidal charts out. It seems there's two high tides and one low tide per day. Must go find some treasures at a place called "Road's End". A girl in a little book store here in Lincoln City gave me the scoop for the best place to play. I'll be back to browse in her shop at high tide!

Another masterpiece!

My friend Cindy is an amazing artist! She masters each new medium she sets her hand to. Have a look at this acrylic. I love the intensity and warmth of the colors. I look forward to our monthly PHAP meetings so I can see what treasures she has wrought. Here is her site.

Book with hand sewn binding

Pass it on!

A couple short weeks ago Josh was wanting to take a course to learn how to do book binding. Today he tutored his friend in the art of making a hand-sewn book. And what a good team they made! I'd say he is as gifted a mentor as he is a student.
