Receiving a package in the mail (inside neatly placed a book, an art print and a Leica camera with case), artist Marjolein Caljouw is asked by French sender/client to paint the leather case included within box. A “Capricorn,” he says. And so she begins sketching the mountain sea-goat on paper and painting it on leather (see bottom of post). This being an atypical project for Caljouw who generally does mixed-media art on paper of beautiful maidens in Neverland and Wonderland.
