No words came with these pages so I am unsure as to Mim's thoughts behind her wonderful snakes and minnows on the back painted page. Her work is exquisite. Wonderful wonderful drawings and watercolors...These pages are not necessarily in the order in which they were done as some are attached and some are not... This beautiful African painting is rich in texture and colors a thousand times brighter in real life than here...Joss in London, England knows I love her South African history and the art that flows from her in this vein.
This one also backed by a sweet poem that I am betting Lolo wrote herself. (You forgot to sign it). You will surely recognize Marianne's mandala style here, from the Netherlands, and won't be at all surprised that cats fill this circle of love. Again, a quilt and cats...and I did NOT offer up a theme, but they KNOW ME and what I am about and what I like...
Once again the back contains a sweet painted drawing and poem for what she calls "The Queen of Quilts". Ah shucks. Poem by Judith L. Cox. Again I hope it is legible. This mixed media piece by Caroline in Malaysia includes paint, stamps, cutouts, torn papers, and real rose petals to make this incredible page for my book also with it's own poem embedded. So so very pretty! And the simply beauty on the back of the page... Lisa in Indiana, USA, embellished this page in such an awesome manner joining the nine artists criss-crossing around the world with charms and beads and each of us represented in felt and yarn hair can you see? It is simply precious in all it's wondrous detail.
You can see on the back each city, state, country recognized... And then Kathy's page, from Ohio, USA, another creator of art quilts, embellished in buttons and beads, papers and fabrics, paint and threads to make up a splash of color on black that is fantastic to behold... How can I thank you all enough for the time and thought, effort and care, and artistic endeavor that you put into your pages? I love each and every one of them, front and back, paint, paper, fabric, glue, charm, bead, button and thread. I love my book.
