This year I used some found paper from one of our rituals — the assembly of IKEA furniture.

So many people complain about their assembly instructions which we find pretty darn clear in most circumstances. What's really tricky is actually counting everything in the box at least twice, deciding if their directions need to be followed in exactly the order they give you, and of course hacking the furniture by changing knobs, painting parts.

I made some annotations on each book. They are observations and suggestions to make the experience better.

4x4 2019, is the result of a drawing-a-day project — making at least one drawing each day. This project involved the use of four-inch squares of paper of various weights, colors, and surfaces. I found that many small pieces could be cut out of remnants of paper in my studio.

I've signed and labeled the artwork. Now I'll wrap them up for delivery to art consultant Susanna Gold for hanging. Time to get out the packing materials.

My newest commission Sonic #1. I heard from the art consultant that it has been installed "easy peasy". After I get back from my autumnal visit to the high peaks of the Adirondacks I'll have it documented.

This piece consists of three 12 x 24 inch birch cradled panels. I wish I could show you multiple images. This is a pic before I packed it up for delivery. Looking forward to the documentation pics.

I'm interested in drawing in this proportion for a couple more pieces. The length is required for the Sonic feeling.

I was happy to partiicipate in the Philadelphia Open Studio Tours again in 2018. I had many wonderful, thoughtful visitors. I had a large selection of new drawings.

I'm currently assessing participating again in 2019. More likely than not. Its always good to meet new folks and talk with fellow artists.

Submitted this to KIND OF BLUE. I've begun making a small series of experimental repetitive mark drawings. It's easy to make some of these where ever I go. There will be a series at Philadelphia Open Studio Tours this year.
