A collection of my own pictures of the sky. Some were taken years ago, some were taken a few weeks ago. I’d been growing and tending to this collective for a long period without even realising. It didn’t necessarily have a specific function to begin with, it was mostly just to have the satisfaction of seeing all the imagery as a physical thing. Over time, however, I began to use the images as references for my paintings so that I had a variety of material to work from. The pages of the book show evidence of this, with paint smudges across the images. The book quickly lost its pristine and clean cut appearance.
