sketchbook and moleskine exchanges
1 Moleskine exchange:
Gesa sends her book to me - and it arrived this morning. :>)
She's used a really interesting mix of media and integrated them beautifully - something that looks easier to do than it is - relating to the theme for her book ' Lines, Lineages, Linings' with a lovely quote from Nicholas de Stael
' a series of discontinous lines that try to define a space by exploring the emptiness of the sheet on which they appear to be hanging but that can, at any moment, take them in' H Maldiney on Nicholas de Stael 1953 - a great quote , related to beautifully by this piece. There is another as well but that photo didn't come as well.
My local landscape - city/country/close up/panoramic/detail/whatever seems very ordinary in comparison.
There are 8 of us in the group. Here's the cover of mine, which flies this afternoon.

scribble on the envelope (recycled) as mine wings its way to Ronell in France - it leaves this afternoon. :>)
