I have a book club of 6 women from my MS cohort. We meet all over about once a month to talk about books! One month, we met in Claremont and took a little fieldtrip to the Prison Library Project bookstore. They had a bunch of books for $1.00 each, and so I grabbed some to alter and use in collaging and my therapy practice later.
These are made with some of those books, acrylics, sharpie, and metallic watercolors. I was in a desert mood when I made them. I had never read the book that I took the text from, but I was intrigued as I did it. Someone died in the first few pages. They lived in New Mexico. It all fit.
