The first of MANY new pictures • January 19, 2017


Well hello!


I have at least 140 new two-sheet images, many of which will be bound into accordion folded albums of 12 pictures each. It’ll take lots of shuffling to figure out the right pictures and order for these albums, but guess what? I can use a digital reader to create virtual albums, so I can see exactly how things will look before I ever get to the real binding! Ya gotta love technology!


A couple things I know already: each pair of sheets will have to be hinged in the middle first, and I think I’m also going to add a nice deckle edge on each side. I really like the way this looks, and so far, I like the quiet green you see here the best.


Soon, you’ll get to watch as these albums are sorted into shape, but meanwhile, here’s a peek at what I’ve been painting! At least one – and maybe two – of the albums will be all about dragonflies! Did you know Norwegians call dragonflies eye-stickers? I love that, and since one of these albums is for my Sweetie, it’s only fitting that this little series of high fliers be titled in Norwegian.
