Writing and Painting

Book Cover

Book Cover

Writing is back in the forefront this week. As a trial, I published a Kindle Cookbook. It is simple and focuses on using storage and space in cooking for 1 or 2 people. The only illustration is a drawing I have previously posted here, I used on the cover.

I am also working on a new book that is more elaborate and contains hand drawn illustrations and maybe some of my photographs. This one is on organization and space planning in the home. I studied interior design and architecture and was assistant designer for many years at a small construction company and space planning fascinates me.

I did also work on another pendant painting. Copper wire from an old CRT monitor has been woven into a mounting for an acrylic painting of a Hawaiian Sunrise silhouetting the scene. I pulled the copper gun mounts apart and unstrung one, wove the wire together and shaped the mounting for the picture. It is pure rich color copper not the art wire I usually see, I love it.

I grouted the table but have not yet sealed it or but the glass top or trim on.
