From the Book of Blue
Just after I pretty much ruined a morning's work on another piece, by messing up the blue ink (the piece has now been painted over a multitude of times and is in the recovery phase!), I decide to fold another sheet into one of the pseudo book pages that I am so fond of making. This time the blue ink decided to behave itself and followed in step nicely, one dot after another carefully bleeding, just so, into the Japanese paper. It's been dipped in beeswax, which makes the whole thing beautifully translucent. This looks like some sort of text that needs a bit of translation or decoding. I'm calling it a page from The Book of Blue.
I hope you're having a fine weekend! See you on Monday with A Walk in the Universe post on "Place"...until then, enjoy your inner and outer life, one moment at a time!
