Painting Lessons (book) 2012

This book was created during the summer of 2012–sparked by Holly Roberts’ class at Shakerag on collage & painting.  The book was created by laying down gouache washes on 300-lb watercolor paper, sewing them together, and then proceeding to stitch, cut, paint, photo transfer and collage my way into a book that is about learning to paint, the creative process, ghosts, color and circle vs. square.  The gallery here shows the complete book, click here to read the text only, a sort of poem.
