A few months ago I posted designs for a new alphabet inspired by a Zanders calendar. It took me a while to wrangle this piece but it was finally finished in April. And the alphabet acted exactly how I intended! What? Already started another one.
Instead of making letters and words with my stencils I decided to create an abstract piece using only parts of letters. I chose the most generic style of stencil instead of one of my own alphabets. Something architecty or engineeringy or designy (well, that’s a given with me) happened and I need to make more as soon as possible.
Well, I don’t understand hashtags and honestly fear them. I have never searched one or placed one in an electronic correspondence. So, before I go extinct, I wanted to deal with a hashtag where I could control where it could spread . . . and just now as I am re-reading this post, silly me!
And, yes, I have a hidden word in here about how all of this makes me feel.
If you are the first to find it I’ll give you a print!
This sentiment is printed in a couple colors and even a blind emboss. It is a collagraph. If you don’t win the contest and want to purchase one, let me know.
I hear that people like to see work in progress (see, I can listen, too). This piece is called “I Am Talking.” I have an ampersand (&) or two in there and repeat the words twice to convey that once we get talking . . . sometimes we just can’t stop. . . I better just speak for myself here.
As I mentioned in my earlier post, thanks to Jennifer Ford Art these pieces and more are available for purchase at:

Thank yous, best wishes and cheers to finding every piece you carried cross-country a home in New York to Jennifer Ford Art and her wonderful team and collaborators. Here are a couple of my pieces that will be shown there. This a silkscreen on a reclaimed press sheet from the manufacturing process involved in making paint chips that you find at a hardware store.
And this is an encaustic. This fair has a design bent to it I think that my sensibilities will be well understood.
In my next post I plan to show the progress of five encaustics that are ready and waiting for the fair to open.
