This started off as a blank wooden box that I painted and decoupaged as a Christmas gift for my wife, Sue. Once it was done, I realized that I couldn't just give her a wooden box…that I had to fill it with something. After much thought, I decided to turn this into a book of my art work made with her in mind. The book covers are 8.5 x 8.5 x 2 inches in size and each of the 7 pages of art work are 7.5 x 7.5 inches. The pages rest loose within the book with liner sheets between each. They are all tied together with a ribbon. In the note that I gave her with the book, I stated that the pages were loose so that I could add to them from time to time. The art works range from watercolors, pastel paintings, and collages. Several are nature oriented, others more figurative.
