|titles and authors of my new books|
I tend not to buy 'how to stitch' books. I tend to buy books on nature or painting believe it or not.
I picked The Great Saskatchewan Bucket List by Robin & Arlene Karpan in order to find cool places in the province to explore & photograph. There are 50 places listed, including the Badlands, salt water lakes, Waterfalls, and two giant masses of moving sand dunes.
I picked On Arctic Ground by Debbie S. Miller because of the photography. I have a deep desire to go north - the idea thrills me to no end! All my life I've wanted to travel the treeless tundra.
I chose Saskatchewan Wayside Wildflowers by Linda Kershaw for the purpose of plant identification in my art. I LOVE this field guide. It's terrific! It would only be better if it were spiral bound so it would lie open.
|Linda Kershaw's book has great clean & clear photos of each flower/weed that is covered|
It has great photos instead of sketches. Ideal! And it's all color coded so I'll be able to find them easily when I don't know the name. PERFECT. : ) Check this out - in my studio, I can use my kitchen cookbook stand to hold it open! Isn't that awesome? And look at the amazing reference pages! I LOVE this book. It is so helpful.
|terrific book for me by Linda Kershaw / Saskatchewan Wayside Flowers|
Juanita was the first person to suggest a nature book about grasses. I thought she was so close that I emailed her to tell her so. Then another email came in just last night from Jojo. It was in French. I had my bilingual son translate it for me and Jojo's guess included books on flowers and books on landscapes. WOW Jojo, you were right on! So... I'm going to send some goodies to the BOTH of you. Congrats Juanita and Jojo! Please send your mailing address to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll pack up something I hope you'll both enjoy. : ) YAY!
