Book weekend

Following the egg tempera/icon painting class a couple of weekends ago, this weekend is the Byzantine bookbinding class. It should be fun. The instructor, Bonnie Stahlecker gave a talk and slide show of her own work this evening. She showed a selection of her work from the past 10 years or so, many of which were accordion books or sculptural works, but there were couple of examples of the binding we'll do tomorrow. Not sure what I would do with what I learn, but of course I'm interested in anything Byzantine. Her imagery is very painterly, very beautiful.

Took care of the business end of things today -- got a submission out and got some details of the Hillsboro show ironed out.
