An Art Marathon

I spent the entire day yesterday, from 7 AM till almost midnight (with the exception of a few small breaks), working on Sally Turlington's journal. The theme she chose for her altered calendar is "Not Yo Mama's Michelangelo & Da Vinci" - what a hoot! I worked on the month of June in the book. This is part of a year long journal collaboration with a group of talented artists from MMCA. Oh my goodness, the work already in this book is beautiful and inspiring; so much so that it's always a bit difficult to begin that first page. But begin I did, and I kept at it until I was finished. Doing this many pages in a day is a first for me, but knowing my daughter and family with be arriving in 3 days made it important for me to get it done while it was quiet, and I could put my whole heart into it.

Wow Katie, your work in Sally's book is... well, it leaves me speechless! I'm sure she will have her mouth open to the floor when she sees it! It's just gorgeous! I love your color choices. I really love your fabric piece from your previous post too. I actually posted a comment about it but it never "took"! Oh well... great work! I spent ALL of yesterday purging in my studio! Gosh, where did all this stuff come from? I've been drowning in it. Now, I'm packing boxes to share it with new ABer's who are just getting started! Ah... feels good! And this is the lazy way of organizing... instead of, once again, trying to find a way to organize all this stuff, I'm just getting rid of most of it! LOL!
