Some days you are just extraordiarily lucky to meet someone like Paula Bogdan and see the magic she is creating inside an old Atlas.
Paula came to Patti Digh's reading to show Patti the images in her ART JOURNAL that had been inspired by essays in Life is A Verb.
When I looked closely at the book Paula explained that she chooses old books like this Atlas because the paper is thicker and better to work with.
Then she sets out to create her magic.
The textured surfaces of the pages are created by layers of paint, collage and writing. They are lyrical and mysterious - beautiful and fascinating.
