HANDMADE BOOK OF CALIFORNIA BROWN PELICANS – Using my pelican photographs & watercolor pelican illustrations, I created this handmade book. A glimpse into the beauty & magic of these ancient, sacred birds.
THIS RECIPE WAS GIVEN TO ME BY A FRIEND & I CHANGED THE MAYO TO PLAIN YOGURT TO MAKE THIS HEALTHIER. HONEY BEARS ARE ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS!
I DREAM OF VESSELS LINED UP ON A WINDOW SILL. FRAGRANT TEAS ARE SERVED TO ME. I AM FRUITFUL & FERTILE WITH IMAGINATION & HOPE. THE VESSELS FILL WITH RAIN WATER & TADPOLES GROW. WIND RATTLES MY AMBER BEADS HANGING ON A NAIL. THE VESSELS SPILL OUT INTO THE LILY POND. CARP CRY UNDER THE MOON. THE LOTUS BLOOMS & I LIGHT A CANDLE TO MY SACRED SELF. – Nancy Lee Artist By the Sea (c)2015
Handmade accordion book with watercolor illustrations & paper collage embellishments. Created in a “Paper Pattern” workshop series given by Bhavna Mehta as part of a collaboration for the inspiration of her paper art installation exhibit “Gush” at the Oceanside Art Museum.
