We have been working on copper mesh books at my local art group. Thanks to Karen Campbell and Terry Ross for all of their help on this project. I love history and tend to go for browns and earthy tones in all my work. I also wanted to do something inspirational. After doing some research on the internet, I decided to model my book after psalters and book of hours. Both were used in the middle ages as prayer books: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Book_of_Hours http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Psalter. The illuminations are beautiful and most of them had more color than I chose to add in mine.
