Gwyneth Jones, the Daring Librarian of TheDaringLibrarian.com and TheCoastalCottageDE.com has written a post featuring my artwork for her and her beautiful nautical-themed cottage (which she rents out on VRBO)!
I have a deep love of art. Art of all shapes, sizes, all mediums and many different types and genres. Modern, art-deco, Rococo, Dutch Masters, El Greco, Van Eyck, impressionist, expressionist, and surrealist. As a young girl I even had an infatuation with Albrecht Dürer and in college I did my senior thesis on Christina and Dante Gabriel Rossetti and the art and literature of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. And don’t get me started on Ancient art & Architecture! But I also love the simple, the hand crafted, the personal. Behold the humble but beautiful watercolor!

Fore-Edge Painting (Secret Hidden Painting!)
How soon can you tell which book this is? Watch for the hidden painting!!What is cooler (for a book-lover) than a secret painting within the book? This is a fore-edge painting, where an artist skilled in miniature painting creates a panorama of scenes from the book. The painting is hidden by the gilt when the book is closed, and revealed by fanning the pages. I will be doing more of these, and perfecting my process! The method dates to the 10th century, but most fore-edge painted books today are from the late 19th-to early 20th century. Skipper Bay is bringing it back!
