The first watercolor paper box of the series was an illustrated journal of all the birds I had seen on my first bird-watching venture to the Ozarks. Through research, I became interested in the visual recordings of bird songs and used the marks as motifs, furthering the idea on this “Humpback Whale” box. The series continued with themes of birds, butterflies, trees, and rabbits.

The flat paper is painted on both sides and then folded into a cube with a lid. The paintings inside the folded flaps are hidden from view.
