Forest Surfaces 2 Beginning

Spent pretty much all day working on this textural book yesterday. The cover is in the beading stage and will be finished in the next couple of hours. This book contains digital prints on most of the surfaces, beading, textiles, lutradur, dyed watercolor paper, dyed burlap and canvas, lace papers, hemp among others. This and the new wall pieces I am working on clearly explore the surfaces of the forests I have visited.

Depicted here are all the pages stacked together and a couple of details of open pages and single pages. Depending on how today goes, I will photograph the finished piece in the next day or 2.

Creating Surfaces

Well the month of January is almost over and this is my first post this year. Mostly my mind has been on creating and working on textural surfaces. I am currently working on a small book which will be small compositions created with my digital designs using textures. Tomorrow I will start to picture pieces of the book. Today, I am posting one of my wall pieces that is done with hemp, canvas, dyes, digital prints on twill, canvas, lutradur and silk to name a few. Mostly playing with an overall surface that is multi textural.
