The Life of Oaringa ©1998 3.5 x 3.25 x .5 inches. Acrylics, watercolor paper, collage. I made this little book when I was in a real slump - no ideas, no motivation. A friend said "just go make something - don't think of it as ART, just something to do. Don't plan on showing it to anyone." I thought I might bind it with an imitation ring binder metal cover, like Christmas on Mars, so I made largish holes in the pages. It sat unbound on my work table for about a year, finally I sewed it up with a Keith Smith binding for single sheets. It looks unfinished to me now, but I do like it. Maybe someday I'll be in a slump and will add something to the pages.

The table of contents. Book structure is important to me - I love the table of contents.
