Rough drafting

I learned the hard way that it's best to check assumptions sooner rather than later. So I'm now testing my scanning and photo-editing for the Moon Myth pages, which are in various stages of completion. Note: the cloths have not yet been blocked, so these images are rough indeed ...

Page 1 - Sun and Moon

Page 2 - Father Time

Page 3 - Mother Earth and Moon

Page 4 - Day 1 Sunset

Page 5 - Day 2 Rainstorm

Page 8 - Day 11 Thunderstorm

Page 15 - The End

Just loving the phases and the days - the rain shower and thunderstorm are particularly brilliant representations. I so want to hold and read this book - your images and planning are very good at making us feel the way.

Mo - I smile ... my “way” is rarely clear to me

Fiona - thank you ... if it all works out, I’m hoping to make a print version available at cost (at least initially) ... but there’s a long way to go yet

There is so much to love in these pages and process. Again, your sun and moon, with those intense rays tugs at me, the perfect cloth for rain & thunderstorms, and how softly Mother Earth floats with Moon...

Liz~ You truly amaze me! These pages are lovely.

Liz A said...

Nancy - Thank you ... there's so much more to tell, but time flies so I thought I just needed to take a snapshot look at where I'm at before continuing

photographs....and the first two have such new meaning today...
the "kind of time" they represent for me...

Somehow the reply I posted to your comment is not here. But the thought remains true, that I love knowing these bits of cloth tell your story as well as mine. I could ask for nothing better than knowing this.
