Bagatelle #1

I recently posted this bagatelle on Instagram. It's one of a series of daily useless writings made up of leftover paint and discarded papers. I've been making these as an antidote to the several long projects that I've been working on for what seems like forever. I can see the light at the end of this tunnel ... but for now I'm still in the tunnel.

Addressing envelopes with a gold gel pen

I took these envelopes and a gel pen along with me on my trip to Florida recently, doing most of the work on the airplanes. The pen is just about out of ink now, but I eked this one out at the end. I had misspelled the name Rachel and so converted this one to a sample.

After all these years, I've got lots of "samples" in my studio.
