Art Journal: Artists' Book 18

I wish you could see Judy’s wonderful pages in person. There is so much rich texture that I think is hard for the viewer to appreciate through a photograph.

I chose to include these at this point in the book as a transition to the “Self-Portrait” pages. The beautiful walnut brown in combination with the teal feels calm, almost a bit antique. The feeling is reinforced by the bits of lace and ribbon along with the musical papers. Songbirds remind me of singing, and using your own voice, whether in speaking, singing or art.
