Windows of Words

Here is my latest mixed media creation, "Windows of Words." Nine, small metal boxes covered in handmade , or other intriguing papers.Inside are provocative quotes and  I even wrote a poem myself.
 It is now showing  at the Jerome Artists' Coop  Holiday Show in Jerome AZ. for December 2019 and January, 2020.
As a professional calligrapher for the past 35 years,  I am always collecting quotes; tin boxes; papers and more, and then some more..... Remember opening those  little windows at holiday time? This was my theme. The wood has a slightly tree shape if you notice. Using several alphabets such as  Roman , Uncial and  Italic it  was fun to interpret these sayings in a  different style. I invite the public to stop by and explore this interactive art.
