This is DAY
1 of the Facebook art challenge of posting 3 paintings a day over 5 days. (Why let Facebook have all of the fun?...that's why I'm sharing it here, too!). Warm thanks to Debbie Lamey MacDonald, a
Nova Scotia artist for nominating me.
Today, I'm sharing with you a series of paintings I created on a week-long
painting and bookbinding experience during a week in March called Creativity
Unbound in Treasure Beach, Jamaica. Throughout the week, a small, talented and
enthusiastic group of artists created small paintings in watercolor and/or
acrylics on the grounds of the Calabash House mentored by artist Paul King, then crafted
intricate books under the expertise of master book-binder, Bridget Morris of Bella Forte Bookbinding and Letterpress.
Imagine the eye-candy we feasted upon
as we left a cold and snowy, cabin-fever-felt Pennsylvania March and arrived in
the quaint Jamaican seaside town full of warm sun, blue ocean and vibrant
blossoms. I think I could of stayed a month!
My childhood friend, Bridget Morris, coordinated the incredible week and so I'm nominating Bridget to
share in the 5-day FB art challenge to share the amazing craft of her bookbinding
and letterpress business.
Thanks for stopping by!
