“Adornment,” my photograph of Château de Fontainebleau in France has been featured on a fellow artist’s blog. Check it out at http://etsylounge.blogspot.com/2009/09/romance-part-i-idealization-on-etsy.html , a little nod to romantic elements in art. Thanks to Etsylounge for the promotion!

Detail of cover window - Irish postage stamps and map of Ireland.
Hand painted map of Ireland's counties in watercolor done pre-trip.
Map of Western Ireland from the Road Altas we used and a postcard I sent to myself.
Tickets from Bob Dylan in Dublin, the journal entry entered before the concert, and xylene art added post-trip.
Marbled end leaves and ephemera torn from a flyer.
There are no locks and there are frequent visitors (birds, squirrels, etc.). But this is my newest creative haven. A veritable "room of one's own," which I share quite often. It is a peaceful and, most importantly, a creative atmosphere. A private outdoor nook to read or to write, to paint or to book make.

These are some of my newly acquired vintage treasures seemingly straight from an old library (although the typewriter is certainly too loud for a library). The chair seat is retro green tweed and the spring back is covered in a tawny leather worn to a shiny finish. It is comfortable but is in need of new wheels. The dinosaur of a typewriter is a Smith Corona. It is electric & types well, but I’m unsure of its year. And the bookplates I’ve picked up here and there. It looks like the beginning of a collection.
