I first thought of doing the illustrations with block prints, of course, but I couldn't make that work to my satisfaction, so instead I devised a mixture of collage and photoshop. This turned out to work well, because the different papers give the illustrations such cheerful bright colors and patterns. And just for fun, I made the title page a portrait of our meeting house, which then was photo-transferred onto the cake for the party!
And now, after that last spring hurrah, the art show season goes into summer vacation. Except for one Sunday at the farmer’s market in July, I have no more shows until the fall. You’d think that would mean I’d have lots of time to get busy with new work, but we’ll see…
