Searching through my stack of maps for a tiny town called Nieu-Bethesda I was inspired to do something creative.
My studio room was full of maps that I had sorted into colours, areas and sizes (according to the Gift Map Bag patterns) and using the different scales and colours to show perspective I spent the afternoon cutting, sitting and arranging.
For the sky I used the aeronautical maps that border on the shorelines. Part of the sky is the Atlantic Ocean and part of it is the Indian Ocean.
Needless to say I did not find Nieu-Bethesda on any of my maps (it just snuck off the borders) but our sitting room no longer has a large empty white wall so it was, in a different way, a very successful afternoon.
