Poetic Landscape Workshop with Laurie Doctor

 In October, I took a three-day workshop with Laurie Doctor in Basalt CO entitled Poetic Landscape.

The journal/sketchbook of ideas that we painted and lettered is a real treasure. It's fun to continue to work with the techniques we learned and explore new ways to incorporate them in my artwork. The binding weaves three signatures together.

We painted sheets of text wove and then tore them into thirds for the book folios.

Here's the Golden acrylic color palette that we used.

One of my landscapes influenced by the beautiful Basalt country.

Writing with a shell...
William Stafford's poem, The Way It Is, inspired these two pages.

 Here's a grid where I will continue to add the last two sections.
Bits and pieces to add here and there.
