Rainbow moments returned.

Voici my sketchbook which returned a while back. Once all the books have been received, Lindsay will end off our project.

Thank you for such a rich collection of art! And see you all next year, same time same place?

(I apologize for the bad quality. The pics themselves are fine, but the moment they load onto slide, they start blurring, even though I tried tochange and adapt the size how many times!)

…take a moment…

Ronell’s gallery show in Robyn’s Book

 

 

 

 

Here are the pages Ronell’s created for Robyn’s beautiful book. Ronell has chosen to “hang” a charming show showing life in South Africa, a piece of history from England, a road side image from the south east US and the world’s most seductive fruit. Brava Ronell. What a beautiful addition. I’m off now to add my art to Robyn’s book and sadly bid it farewell. It’s my last book.

Robyn’s “Different strokes – book” in Montlouis.(with Ronell)

Robyn’s book, Different strokes, took off from Tuscany one sunny  day in May and this is how she sent it off…

…May in Tuscany…


After stopping at Casey, Nina, Glen, each adding their own colour and story written on the back, this is how it arrived here in Montlouis with the last pages done by Vivien.

…Vivien’s pages…

…close-ups…

…an extract from Vivien’s usual “story-notes”…

I’ll have to roam the chambers of my free spirit to come up with some interesting strokes to fill up my pages in this wonderfully  warm and inspiring book, all the while taking the cue from Robyn’s bee…Not to take myself too serious! And then off to Lindsay!

And lastly: Lindsay’s canoe is on its way home…

…Adieu!…


Captain’s log – Lindsay’s canoe, 2008

Absolutely in love with Lindsay’s “storybook”, with her permission, I bring you snippets of the adventures of her canoe up until where it rests at my(Ronell) place, waiting to turn back home. I’ll post close-ups of Vivien’s and Nina’s pages(which you haven’t seen yet) tomorrow.

Home -where I took off in May 2008

…Starting off from Chicago, US…

…First stop in Italy with Robyn, romantic waters of Venice…

…On to Casey in France, pausing by the the Chateau…

…Spending time with Nina in Northern Sweden…

…Surviving harsh storms in Glen’s England…

…Calm waters through the rest of England to Vivien…

…Anchoring at Ronell in France, turning back home…


Casey’s Book

This is Vivien’s work in Casey’s book. Her amazing landscape work pushes the boundaries again!!!

You have to see these in person!

 

And now for Ronell’s work in Casey’s book. Only such a sure hand could make these bold sketches!

 

Now I have to figure out how to follow these beautiful contributions!

 

Vivien’s Pages in Nina’s book

 

This is Lindsay here. I offered to post these beautiful landscapes of Vivien’s in Nina’s book for Ronell who is feeling under the weather.  Ronell, I hope you are feeling better soon. Hugs and kisses…..

Vivien’s amazing strip landscapes defy gravity. This is the most unusual format I’ve ever seen for landscapes and I’m amazed at just how much information Vivien is able to pack into  this format.

I can’t seem to load in the third page where Ronell has overlapped her work around Vivien’s work…drat. Casey, I’ll have to ask your help by email.

Ronell’s pages in Nina’s book

Sorry for such a long delay in posting these beautiful pages by Ronell. The day before I left for vacation I had not a clue what I’d do in Glen’s book, let alone Nina’s book which popped though my mail slot not a moment too soon.  I’m really glad I did not work on Glen’s book before vacation because I had a really great idea for it while we were in California.  It’s now complete and heading for the post office tomorrow.  I also have an idea for Nina’s book but it will take just a bit longer to do. So, I’m taking a relaxed attitude about being late and know you’ll all understand. 

I’ve been thinking lots about you Vivien and sending you  cyber hugs. (((((Vivien))))
