Day 892 Christmas MemoriesĀ 

I am working on a hand bound memory journal book for my grandkids. This is page three. They are painted on sheets of 8×10″ 280# arches. Sooner or later I hope to bind them into a book. 
The tree is their tree and the toys their two favorites Santa brought. Of course those are their stockings that I knitted for each of them the year they were born. 
Colors -Ted Nuttalls transparent colors plus cerulean. The two colors I can paint without are Daniel Smith Quin gold and cerulean. Well there are a few others but use those a lot. 
I did a base coat on the tree of quin gold before painting it with greens. It alway shows as a nice glow. 

Lettering is done with a small 6 Isabey sable brush which has a wonderful point. 

Busy day. Off to binders to buy more quin gold And cerulean.
