A Stroll Through the Gallery 7x22"---click on blog image for larger view

Click image to enlarge:

This is the inside, 2-page centerfold spread of the Art Journal "Gallery-in-a-book" that I'm working on. It measures a little larger than 7x22". The painting on the left, plus all of the gold frames, are painted directly on the paper. The other three abstract paintings are original "Art Card" paintings, 2.5x3.5" each, affixed with removable tape to the paper. I liked the idea of presenting my original miniature paintings in a gallery format without destroying them as individual works. It's fun to see what they'd look like if they were actually enormous paintings hanging on a gallery wall instead of just a couple of inches top to bottom! The titles of the paintings, from left to right are:
Struck by Lightning
Evening Music
Dueling Boxes

The work on the two pages is done with black ink, gold ink, acrylic, and watercolor. The writing just above the floor describes the paintings.

You can see my January 6 post below for more information about this 8 page journal. Five more pages to go! The journal will be posted here for sale when it is completed. You can also see larger versions of the individual paintings in my posts from the past couple of weeks by scrolling down the blog page.

Wow - I had to look at that a couple of times to see what you meant about the 3 cards being removable. It's like a gallery within a gallery. Cool concept.
