magnetic word play

I spent some time playing with magnetic poetry tiles this week. I found them somewhere amid the slap-together-studio piles of things that I’m still discovering more than a year after our move. And, as luck would have it, today I also found the perfect sized frame and glass that I needed for a painting that’s been underway for a few months (but that will have to wait for its debut).

This is the magnetic word play daily jane “red night vision,” which also happens to be the title of the painting mentioned above.

This is one of the poems I wrote last week for my online poetry MOOC. I wrote a good bit of it before the assignment came out because I needed to do it for myself. To fit the assignment, I had to revise and add. This is the result. Not sure it’s done, but it’s what I submitted.

I know, it’s an image. Not very helpful. If you click on the image on this page, it will take you to the full-sized image, which is still kind of small. While pressing and holding the Ctrl key on your keyboard, also click the “+” key and it will zoom in a little more each time you click.

08-06-17 “Wheel of Fortune (excerpt)”

I have not been doing much visual art in the studio lately. But for a few weeks this summer, I have been participating in a writing MOOC (free online class) from the University of Iowa that has spurred me (by assignments) into writing poetry again. Since this writing has become more regular work than the visual right now, I decided to upload some short excerpts of new poems as daily/weekly janes! Here is a small piece of the longer “Wheel of Fortune.”
