i finished preparing my signatures for travel.
had lots of leftover vintage italian envelopes from TICKET TO VENICE. so i used all the little pieces here and there on the pages. swiped some gesso over the top and i will write & sketch over the page in umbria with my ambitious landscape, piazza, duomo sketches. i’ve probably gotten in way over my head but what the hell. may as well do something artistically that frightens me every now and then.
i know that you, my loyal verizon team cheerleaders, will be kind even if i come home with a big soupy second grade mess.
i included quite a few fold-out flap pages that i sewed on by machine.
and i added some light watercolor washes…on top of which i will compose sweeping vistas of olive groves. or maybe just cartoony scenes of my sister in the hot tub.
everyday i will pop a signature in my bag and head out for a day of sketching adventure.
