The Naturalists' Notebook






Well dear readers,
work continues on 
my new
collection..

The Naturalists' Notebook





Detail of the Notebook cover with three book covers on an antique periodical book, Caterina Giglio




The pieces of work are as yet
nameless..


Detail from the notebook, Naturalist's Notebook, Caterina Giglio






but I think of the one below as my corvid piece..







and I have been painting butterflies 
on tissue paper..












because I wanted to create a sense of 
transparency..








the collection is multi layered 
and I find myself still editing..

painting over and sanding back...











all of the pieces are about 
transformation..
magic, illumination and growth..









it is a personal show...

but highly universal as well..
whom among us is not challenged to grow and change?

The show opens
May 5 and 6
in Fort Collins, Colorado
at 142 Bis Gallerie

and I will be present for both showings..
I am very excited to be going home..

of course it will be ongoing..

We will be shooting film of the show before 
it begins and posting it to YouTube
so that all of you can attend the 
First Friday event..

and we will be shooting
the next YouTube video this week
on Art Journaling: Creating Layers..


Thank you again, for your kind readership..
see you soon..


C4N!

These are really beautiful pieces, Caterina and I love the notion of painting and sanding back.
I am also really enjoying your videos.
Have a great week.

Shaping up beautifully...I especially like the loose ends and the butterflies transparent! It will be great to see the opening!!

So beautiful! Wish I could be in Colorado at that time. But with my boys so far apart and both taking summer courses, I'm not even sure when I'll be in the States this summer. Have a wonderful day.

I'm not sure how I missed this, but your butterflies are fantastic. I look forward to seeing the pieces as you share them in CO.

I am really in awe of how you treated the three book covers. I have TONS of these, but mine are not old. I think you did a fabulous job putting the three together.

Hi Tammy, how I wish you were going to be there at the same time, that would be great. You can see it on video though, so that will be fun!! thanks for stopping by the blog!! xo

Caterina Giglio said...

Hi E, the book covers seemed appropriate, because I used so many book parts in the show, it represents all the knowledge that went into the work and the energy of the past. Thanks for your support E, it means so much! x
