Concertina Book: John Muir Tribute

Here is my concertina book for the participants exhibit at Letters California Style. The project got its start in a fantastic workshop with¬†Joke Boudens¬†last November, and I finished it in time for the exhibit. I learned so much from Joke’s class and the project, and it was so enjoyable because I love California and the writings of John Muir. All the flora and fauna depicted are native to California, and the sign is iconic to folks who hike in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

I have to say I was pretty proud of myself for actually finishing a piece and painting the art elements, too! This piece ended up being tied as one of the winners of the first prize at the Letters California Style 2019 Participants Exhibit. Thanks to everyone who voted for me!
