ACCORDION CROWN-BINDING HANDMADE BOOK – GREEN FLASH

HANDMADE BOOKS CAN BE SO MUCH FUN TO DISPLAY.  This accordion crown-binding book can be displayed standing up & looks like a star from above!  I thought this format was perfect for my photos of a San Diego sunset with a green flash.  The green flash is the spark of green that is on the horizon the instant that the sun moves below the horizon.  Don’t blink or you won’t see it & it doesn’t happen often.    Pages for this book were made by dropping acrylic liquid ink & then speading it quickly with a large brush.  I tried to keep the color palettes to the amber, yellow & moody blues of an ocean sunset.  2015

SOMETIMES LIFE IS ENOUGH – PELICAN THOUGHTS

SOMETIMES LIFE IS ALL ABOUT TAKING CARE OF THE DETAILS,

SOMETIMES LIFE IS ABOUT BEING WITH OTHERS,

& SOMETIMES LIFE IS ABOUT BEING ALONE IN YOUR OWN SPACE.

SOMETIMES OUR SOUL REQUIRES QUIET CONTEMPLATION & A PLACE TO REST & RECOVER,

SOMETIMES LIFE IS JUST ABOUT BEING STRONG ENOUGH TO SHAKE IT ALL OFF & HAVING FAITH THAT IN THE END, IT WILL ALL TURN OUT OKAY.

& SOMETIMES LIFE IS HAVING A FRIEND WHO FACES OUR TOMORROWS WITH US.  I AM THANKFUL FOR THE FRIENDS IN MY LIFE WHO TAKE THIS JOURNEY WITH ME – DETAILS & ALL.
