Cardboard and Staple Piece

Not a new piece, but just returned to me. I was very much thinking of textiles at the time I made this construction, and the repairs and irregularities are still very appealing to me. Each cardboard square is cut from recycled cereal boxes, and measures about two inches square. Over all dimensions: 72 x 42 inches. It may be challenging to frame.

More Sketchbook Pages

Two sketchbooks, I work simultaneously, allow one to dry while I work on the other.  This work is from six months ago, but I'm still working in this manner, now more often on larger paper or panel. Each page measures 16.25" x 11.75".

The Week After An Opening - A Commission and a Few Panels

I'm still coming down off my show and opening reception in Michigan. So I took it a little easy this week. But I did have a commission, and the recent work on panels was so well received in Michigan, I made a few more.

Pictured is the commission, a large grid with three circles within it. It is large, something like 52" x 30" and the circles are made by varying the line weight.

And then the latest installment of the panels with various black and white graphic patterns on them. Studies really, they come quickly and the iterations seem endless. The panels are modular and I move them around continually - there hardly seems to be a bad arrangement. Pictured are four 12" x 12" and four 12" x 16" panels.

A Few Photos From the Opening Reception at Judith Racht Gallery

The show in Harbert looked great. Judith and her crew, Bill and Kelley, did a great job of installation. Fun time at the opening, one too many cocktails, but a beautiful summer evening.

Pictures from early in the evening. Thanks Kathy for taking a few photos.
