This is a compass rose that is collaged on the front of my altered book "Earth tones." I finished my pages for the book and mailed it off to Rita, to work her magic on. Click on her name to see her amazing art work!
The four points in the circles are so beautiful to me, not only as directions, but as earth, air, fire and water, the cycle of life, the seasons, and so much more...
Here is the book on the little oak desk in our family room.
And the book partially opened. I have not wanted to show hole pages so it can be a surprise to the other artists that will work on it...
and two other glimpses of portions of the back pages... a little more blue and green than I usually use.
My daughter and her Erik came to visit this weekend. I am so lucky to have my family, they ground me when life is crazy... Murphy loves Mandy too!
And here is my daughter and I ... a warm winter day filled with smiles.
