Today was my day to gallery sit at Venue Two of the 6th Annual Naked in New Hope Exhibition.
In spite of a fairly constant flow of gallery visitors, I was able to bind my latest sketchbook.
I used linen thread that I waxed with a bar of bees wax. There are twenty five signatures made up of a variety of papers including recycled file folders.
The file folders are excellent for ink and watercolor, similar to working on smooth Bristol Board or a hot press watercolor paper.
I was sitting in the New Hope Arts Center Gallery. Venue One is next door at Sidetracks Gallery. Venue Three is a mile up the road at The Lodge. This is part of the view through the New Hope Arts Center window.
