Five Years and Counting

In celebration of Puget Sound Book Artists 5th Annual Membership Exhibition a call was put out to all members of PSBA to submit a page to be bound into a 5th Anniversary Book. Each page was to be 5” x 5” using the theme of “five”.

five year anniversary book“In numerology, the attributes of the number 5 are freedom, choices, curiosity, adventure, change and life lessons learned through experiences.   These all pertain to attributes found in our journey as members of the PSBA.  What an adventure it has been and certainly life’s lessons learned pertains, and loved it every step of the way.  Thank you for its adventure that hopefully is just beginning.”

Lily Richmond, member PSBA
