From the Picture Book

My Picture Book is exactly what it claims to be: a book of pictures. I collect images that speak to me and paste them down in this simple scrapbook. I love looking at them and they inspire me in ways not even I can pinpoint exactly.

Here are some spreads I've filled lately:

I love how you can see my current fascinations reflected in this book. Things like hex signs and fraktur painting for instance. Things I had never heard about before and am now absolutely in love with. And how about those dotted stones by Elspeth McLean? Sigh...

I don't copy other people's work, but sometimes this book can really inspire me for my morning paintings for instance. And that's what the Picture Book is all about: pure inspiration.

Wishing you all a wonderful and inspiring artsy day!
