Following the ‘Journey’s’ 37 text and image portion of the ‘to be published’ book, the next section featured is titled ‘Snapshots and Memorabilia’. Highlighting letters, pictures, and items received in the mail from people I met during the Journey to Ukazoo. Eight images and notes were part of this section. Shown here is one of those images.
As for the present Journey to Ukazoo Book project, The filming for the Kickstarter submission video was delayed as I needed to rework the storyboard to keep the descriptive discussion within a 2 minute format.
Border artwork is now being transferred to Bristol paper, inked in, and watercolors added. I want at least 8 of the 74 border images ready for the video.

Posted is the 12” x 12” pencil Worksheet to be used for the ‘Duplex” painting.
Referring back to last weeks first sequenced ‘Doodle’ post of this “Duplex” painting, I mentioned the omission of the ‘rocky column’ shape in the ‘semi-worksheet’. I felt this was an important feature in the ‘Doodle’ so I have retained it.
The five ‘spheres’ I also decided to retain but not in the original position shown in the ’Doodle’.
For certain art genre, particularly landscape paintings, attention is given to establishing a ’foreground’, middle-ground, and ’background’. In this painting, while I have those three planes/grounds shown as the triangle trees/rocky column in the foreground, the two cities as the middle-ground and the sun/sky as the background, it is the intersecting of various shapes that project an ambiguous overlapping of those three planes.
Next week, the painting in progress.
The project will be posted in the following sequence, 1st Monday-the sketch/doodle or related source from whence the painting has originated.
The second Monday-the 12”x12” pencil worksheet showing the intended painting.
