Found Landscapes

I had a fun little discovery while working in my studio recently. I was trimming some monotype prints and about to throw the scrap papers into the recycling bin when I noticed how they looked like tiny landscapes. I continued to trim them down to 1-1/4 inch squares, then heightened them with water soluble pen and pencil to create a watercolour effect. I selected the best 6 and made a little accordion book for them. The result is this little artist book entitiled 'Found Landscapes', because they were found on the way to the recycling bin.
