Dictionary Pages

Owl, 7x10, by Catherine Gurri
Art Web has been busy.  

Catherine found an old dictionary that I saved from a library purge my freshmen year in college.  Let's just say that year was a long time ago.  The dictionary binding had given up the ghost so Catherine is giving the pages new life with these 7x10 charcoal and conte sketches.  

I love the eyes on this owl. 

This is truly art with good karma.  Beyond the repurposed pages, the water based polyurethane she used came from the local recycling center.  The boards are from the cull bin at Home Depot.
