Fun With Folding Book!

I'm having great fun experimenting with these new folding books I've been making (how-to video here)!  This was from my workshop at the Penticton Art Gallery on Saturday (finished later).
Next stop?  Sitting outside the Convenience Store on Main Street today - looking across at Grant King's, Mykonos and of course Nite Moves, where Austin worked while he was home last summer.

Here it is before the page gets flipped out, with a little peek at the Cannery Building sketch on the next page:

Your spreads are always outstanding, and this format really shows off your composition. It amazes me how much paper you cover with out overworking it!

This is so great! Your paintings are fabulous! I made a tiny one with scraps, which is okay, but I didn't think about how the thickness of the paper on such a small size would affect it. Now I wish I would have done one this size! That looks perfect! And I love how it looks when you have it opened!
