Series of paintings featuring funiculars…

Funiculaire(s)… those little railroads which transport people up challenging hills within cities or mountains. About 4/5 passes of paint on the each – you can see the buildup process…

Just a little Guestbook / Scrapbook project…

Did I mention I love making scrapbooks? Scissors and glue and (miscellaneous & travel-related mostly) ephemera assembled into handmade journals with delicious paper to create a story of sorts. I have stacks of these. Curious? Do you make these things? If yes, please share with me.

Scrapjournals for no particular reason

Often times, I make scrap journals for no particular reason, just for enjoyment of gathering interesting paper tidbits and ephemera which I enjoy… Then somehow a “theme” or story of some kind emerges. Especially after being stuck/fermenting in a suitcase for months or years, as soon as I open a booklet of artifacts, so many memories return. Some of you might see oddities in here wish you recognize and enjoy as well presented in a different context.
Do you gather memories and stories in someway?
