Do You Want To See?

I just finished this little handmade art book . . . .  it’s about 4.5″ x 5.5″.

It cups nicely in the hand, and was created much like OVA.

This book was created for a dear friend whom I spent some time with this summer. She and her husband live close to the ocean. We were walking on the shore,  and a small boy asked us if we would like to see his starfish. This prompted a poem, and then the art book.

About CarolWiebe

Art entices, inspires, and delights me. Art is a vehicle for laughter, tears, wonder, enlightenment--taking me on a constant path of discovery. You can't say that about housework (except, perhaps, for the crying part).

    This is amazing Carol. It is a real honour to be able to see your beautiful work. And, through this, how your beautiful mind works.

      Aw, shucks, do you say that to all your aunts?

      Seriously, Dan ~ you are one of the most creative people I know, and I love the way YOUR mind works. It was such a lovely surprise to find a comment from you , here.

  2. Bravo Carol! I am amazed at how quickly you work! I worked most of the summer on my visual art journal from scratch. I’ll be posting soon. I have Studio Tour this weekend!

    These are lovely Carol. they have your spirit all over them.
    I sure hope one day I too can make some books…you inspire me a lot!
    thank you.

    Oh, my, thank you all. I have to say that this little book was an absolute joy to make, and an even greater joy to send to my friend. She has it, now, and let me know that she was speechless when it arrived in her mailbox, as a total surprise. She used the word exquisite, which pleased me because it meant that the work resonated with her, as I hoped it would.

    This was a true gift of the heart, and I hope to do more work of that nature.

    Your comments urge me on. Merci, beaucoup.

    I must add a little plug . . . this work of my heart is also what I would like to teach. If you know of a venue, a place where we could gather and share our hearts desires using thread and paint, please let me know!

    Hi: I have just found your book on the Quilting Arts site. I am also a Wiebe and love making mixed media books- just finished one inspired by the movie “Picnic at Hanging Rock”. I live in Victoria, B.C. Canada- where are you?????
