I've noticed that you like to paint with book pages as your "canvas" and I think it's really interesting. Do you choose your pages from books that are about your subject? Like, for this painting, did you choose a page from Moby Dick, for instance? I just chose Moby Dick because it's the one that came to mind, not because I actually think you chose a page from that book.
Also, I notice you said you mounted the page onto watercolor paper. I've always wondered how you could paint on a book page without it becoming all warped and wrinkled.
