SPRING AND THE BOOK DRESS

I had so much fun creating this painting. She truly transformed into SPRING AND THE BOOK DRESS.

I just adore Roald Dahl books and “JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH” has got to be one of my favorites. I keep an extra copy around just for this sort of thing. For this piece, I cut half-circles from pages of the book and painted each one individually with watercolors then layered them to create her BOOK DRESS. Then I added an alchemy of materials from my studio…pastels, acrylics, ink and modern and vintage papers. On top, I applied a decoupage finish to protect the collage from the elements.

Details and close-ups, along with archival prints, now available in my ART SHOP.

  1. Hi Juliette~

    Thank you for your kind words on my blog!

    I absolutely adore the BOOK DRESS…I love how you “weaved” the words into her dress, just like all the words that swirl around us that interweave into our own lives.
