Despite the pandemic, 2020 into 2021 has been a productive time. I continued experimenting with letter shapes, out of which came two shape alphabets. The first one is made of painted corrugated cardboard, and for a few months beginning 1/1/2021, I was posting a word a day made from it on social media.

The second one is made of aluminum flashing and will be the basis for and an abcedary that I hope to publish later this year.

I also started a series of what I call "follies," two-dimensional painted metal cutouts that are buoyant, fun constructions.
