For my next spread i did a portrait composition using one of Julian Schnabel's portraits with the texture of plates under the paint. A bit of Portfolio oil pastels to blend in the background. I flipped through a children's book and found the caption you see above. I thought it was fitting!

Altered Calendar - October
For this month's altered book round robin calendar swap - i had S's book The Odditorium. You can see the pages i did in it back in the April HERE. The goal is to add colourful and unusual characters - real or imagined. I found two Modigliani prints in a book - which i cut out and places on a hand painted deli paper background. I wanted to add a witty comment about the couple on the right, which was titled Bride and Groom by the artist. But they just don't look like a married couple to me - so it didn't work. I searched through a book looking for something to caption the pages, and went with a modified dedication - To mother and father and sister Vera, then on the facing page, added "Why the long faces?"
