Just for SQUARES!

There was a prompt from CreativeSprint to make something just using squares. I'd forgotten how I'd learned to love squares while teaching 2D design with Wucius Wong and Josef Albers Interaction of Color (years ago) I thought, Wow, there must be other Square lovers out there. Thanks to Katerina for the name idea.

Thanks, Mim.

Mel Anie, I would have them use the long side to burnish the collages bits onto the background. Ensures, or somewhat ensures, that the bits don’t come off in transit.

Mim, I am interested in this phone card burnishing technique. Is it the rounded edge or the straight edge that you use? I have been to York but not the New one.

Going through small tins on my work table, I came across the one that I keep old loyalty cards, membership cards, old phone cards from France & Turkey, Remember Phone cards? oh my. I kept them for students to use as burnishers when I gave my collage workshops. I found this one, Malevich, homage to the square, maybe not the title, oh will we ever get up to New York City again, to MoMA?

I’m so Happy to see more members to this group! I’m as fond of squares as I am circles. Carry on! Be square!

Oh! sorry, Mel Anie, I have given you the idea that 'dancing square' is Janus' current project. I am afraid it is not! But this is

No reason why we could not put it in a square, though, being thrifty.

Circles, squares, dance - yes, I'm all in. I was always told to stay away from Janus but....
