This book is based on a quote from twentieth century French painter Pierre Bonnard's notebooks: "Purple in the grays. Vermillion in the orange shadows, on a cold, fine day." Inspired by his intense use of color and the cold winter weather at the time of making, I used handmade paper and watercolors to create a bright, abstract representation of the passage of a day in shades of light and color. The book was on display as part of the 2016 Tiny Book Show.
