my travels, aceo, leaves
|leaves, monoprint and collage, aceos|
Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you.
You must travel it by yourself.
It is not far. It is within reach.
Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know.
Perhaps it is everywhere - on water and land.
Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass
I found this old "my travels" book at a local outdoor market this past summer. It's about pocket size and has these lovely, beige pages inside. They seemed like a perfect background for monoprint leaves.
The other two aceos are a collage of papers that I had kept in a jar. I hadn't planned on these being a set. As I was thumbing through them, I realized the colors and shapes go really well together. Now, I've just got to frame them and they'll be a bit of sunshine on a winter morning.
