Liquid Topaz: Art on the Run

"Liquid Topaz, page 71," 5x7inches, mixed media, copyright 2011 Shelley M. House.

Altered books are fun to work on when you want an art project that’s portable. I’ve chosen a limited palette that travels well, so “Liquid Topaz” goes everywhere with me.

Storefront window works well for tracing stencils.

meeting murmurs sleeping

My poems and images seem to be full of contradictions. It will be interesting to see if all the pieces fit when they’re done. My goal is to finish 12 pages before my summer break ends in 3 weeks. Can I do it?

Time will tell.
