Back to page 35, one of the missing pages on the black Fabriano Artistico. It's supposed to be a portrait of Roscoe Holcomb, but it doesn't look like him.
Still, I like the illustration. It's done with NeoColor IIs. I just like layering the colors up. It's coated with Krylon's Crystal Clear, in a probably vain attempt to keep it from leaving color on the opposite page.
I'm a bookbinder who specializes in making journals. I've kept a journal my own self since 1970. It has evolved over the years from a sketchbook with class notes from college classes, into a documentation of my wonderful life and friends and family.
I teach classes in making and keeping journals.
I just finished The Expats, by Chris Pavone and loved it! There's a lot of foreshadowing in it, which usually drives me nuts, but somehow didn't in this book. I'm also reading Twenty Thousand Roads, a bio of Gram Parsons because we played a string of his songs at Ken and Ellie's Hanukkah Party last Sunday. Yes, I do realize it's a bit late for a Hanukkah celebration... Or early...
I'm still reading/studying the US Constitution. In an election year, everyone and her aunt seem to quote from it, often claiming opposite things. It's only 4,440 words long!
