I have a pile of booklets in various states of non-finished. Some of them are made from papers I painted and others were booklets I picked up, such as the ones I get from the paint store. All of them are constructed by papers folded over and stapled along the spine.
I haven’t felt like book production lately so they are just waiting for when I am ready. One day the mood will strike. But for now, no.
I did have one book that was partly done. I looked through it. I liked the pictures on some of the pages and on others, not too much. And remember that in a book there is artwork on both sides of the paper. So I went through and chose which pages I liked best. I cut the book apart and the unchosen, well, they are not the ones I am showing you below.
I guess maybe someday I might figure out something to do with these and take advantage of the double-sidedness – or I’ll let them be framed or pinned on the wall or whatever, just the one side showing. Who knows, wherever they end up, the viewer/owner/picture hanger may like the reverse side better. Nice to have a choice? But for now, here are the ones that appealed to me.
Each picture is about 8″ x 8″. Acrylics on glossy brochure paper.
