I thought I'd pop in today and post the latest pages of the ABC Book I'm working on for my grandkids.
As I mentioned in a recent post, I have been inserting scanned images of some of my old artwork into the book wherever I can, with a dual purpose: 1. It's a good way to preserve some pieces that have sentimental value to me but are not necessarily ever going to hang on a wall; and 2. It saves time! (And maybe with a little help from these old friends I will finally finish this project, which had its humble beginnings a quarter of a century ago!)
For the right-hand page, I re-purposed an acrylic painting I did of my husband tossing our firstborn son into the air, inspired by a grainy snapshot I'd taken of them on my Instamatic camera.
I wish I could say that now that the U's are uploaded, I'm almost finished with the project. But I haven't exactly been going in order. I still have to do I, J, K, N, O, Q, and R before I get to V, W, X, Y, and Z. But I am officially over half-way done--and that feels almost like a miracle!
