books for art

Among the many things I had on my to-do list today, one was to stop in and visit Trish at the Punk Rock Flea Market down on 1st Ave in Belltown. She was there selling some cool t-shirts with a few of her designs on them. The reason why I stopped in was to drop off some blank journals I made for her. Several months ago we arranged a trade: several of my coptic bound journals- but really, really, really thick, for this encaustic triptych of hers. I felt so honored that she wanted my journals as I have loved her paintings for a long time.

Spruce and Juniper, encaustic triptych by Patricia Seggebruch

I have the painting in my living room and I feel happy whenever I see it. If you are local and would like to see Trish’s fabulous encaustic work in person, she has a show hanging at Habitude in Ballard. I believe it will be hanging for the rest of the month and a little bit into October.

She gave me the paintings several months ago when I gave her the first set of journals that I made especially for her. But it took me months to get the second batch to her. Life and preparing for my show has consumed me and I haven’t had a chance to go visit her in her studio out in Snohomish. The cool thing is that I made her journal covers out of beautiful pieces of birch wood, which I had never done before. I really like how they turned out, so I will be making some for myself. I am sadly almost done with this journal, so a new one is on the horizon.
