In the wake of being selected by Barebrush.com to have one of my artworks from the “Pattern Woman” series in their June 2016 calendar, I’ve created a new book featuring a more extensive view of additional works. The calendar is on view at Barebrush.com and the individual work occupies the June 9th slot. The book is available at Peecho.com.
After coming across this first link from the Google Cultural Institute, I thought I’d take a look at some interesting art this time.

This 800 page color book was created long before Pantone. It’s hard not to compare the hundreds of pages of color to its contemporary equivalent, the Pantone Color Guide, which wouldn’t be published for the first time until 1963.
