Well, after much encouragement, and time taken from painting, I have finally finished the first book of my landscape paintings.
It was a good experience going through many picture files of paintings, sorting the ones that I felt should be in the book and the 'maybes'. I may have spent more time with the memories they evoked than in making the hard decisions. Of course, many seemed to be missing or I had no photo record of them. And yes, are they not always the best ones? (at least in my mind)
In the end, I am happy to be able to see and enjoy my work in this form , and to be able to hold it in my hands.
I thank those who encouraged (pushed) me to create this book.
I hope that others will get as much pleasure looking at this book as I did putting it together.
I have put a "button" on the sidebar to your right which will allow you to, "check it out".
If you have time, Please do..
'til next

Frank, This is terrific. Any chance of persuading the artist to sign a copy?

Keith Tilley said...

It looks like a wonderful book Frank - the preview has left me wanting more. It will certainly be on my Christmas present list.

I love the eye-catching cover by the way.

Hi Bill : ) thanks for stopping by and for your compliment.
Hey, no problem getting the artist to sign a copy. The problem is getting the artist out there to do it. : )
Hey, like what your doing with the class. Interesting concept. Nice portrait.
Hope everthing is going well.
Take care.

Very cool Frank. Looks great. I have been trying to get a blurb book together, but am having a hard time getting the java program for my mac.
I am not the brightest bulb on the tree.

Thanks for looking Frank..Keep trying for that program. I really want to see that book. It would be a beaut.
Hope that you got home safe and refreshed after your painting holiday "up north".

Take care..
