dry pages

 you can see the pages
 this photo has truer colors
muted
quieter
 the sunlight made them dance
more then they actually were
nonetheless i am pleased
there are sixteen pages
waiting for story
detritus from cbbag fair
i would have put one K down
for george walker's new book about tom thomson
if i had it kicking around
or at very least i want to sit down with it sometime 
it was amazing.
i met some wonderful book people, 
and visited with papeterie st armond folks.
and took my sister claudia to a celebratory lunch
a duck walked by our table
only in ottawa: fine art,
fine food
quack

They are a story in themselves.

Perfection. A marriage of color and texture. And the collection is greater than its parts.

Your pages are stunning.
Isn't George Walker's work amazing.
Thinking maybe I should renew my membership to CBBAG even if I can't get out to any events or courses any more...so wish that I could.
