Santa Torres's Pocketful Book is a big old book with pockets for record albums. You don't see many of these anymore! It is a beautiful book and it is full of lots of richly detailed art at this point. I loved the book from the minute I picked it up. I also knew what I wanted to do immediately.
An important lesson I have learned is encapsulated in the phrase "Speak Truth to Power." The exact origin of the phrase is claimed by a number of different sources, but that doesn't really matter to me. It's a difficult but important life lesson and it felt just right for Santa's book.
The inset, which I'm sorry I didn't take a close up of, is a small canvas that sits inside the pocket.
This is the backside of the page.
And, a closeup of the collage on the back.
Thanks Santa, for letting me work in your beautiful book!

excellent lesson and a very nice addition to Santa’s book.
What a clever use for the “book”. I love the textures and colors you used, very nice!!!!
I love it Joyce! Nice dark colors in the background and looks like lots of nice layers!
What a powerful image and message!
Joyce, such powerful words, imagery and color. Beautiful! Can’t wait to see it in person.
