I'm not talking about love letters, but those letters that make up our language, or any language for that matter. Text! Not texting, but . . . Text!
I've been spending some time on Etsy purchasing vintage text items the past few days. The plastic letters here will be used this summer when I do my sun painting on fabric. Those fabrics will make great backgrounds for my mini pieces.
These little letter stamps are 1/2 - 3/4" tall. They came in an awesome box that is an artwork itself. This is just the inside. I LOVE that blue!
I told myself I would play for as long as it was necessary. I would do nothing that smacked of creating to sell. I would not have to complete anything. Completion would be the enemy! Well, that didn't last too long. Here are two pieces that I do believe are finished. I don't know if there will be more like them or not. They are each 6 x 6".
I'm exploring the meanings of how we physically impose our thoughts on the environment and how the environment naturally takes over. I also have a thing for cities -- their naturalness and their unnaturalness. There's something about that urban grid that I love.
We'll see what comes next. I'm excited that thoughts and images have come to me. I always panic thinking that my next step in life will be to become a Wal-Mart greeter. Yet the ideas keep coming.
