Monotype by Mary Gow

Though the shape I most identify with is the spiral, here’s a circle I wanted to share with you. It’s a monotype. In case you don’t already know what a monotype is, it is a one-of-a-kind print made by painting on a piece of glass which is then placed on the printing press. Paper is then placed over the plate and the press is rolled over it.

Now about “oh”! I remember my dear sister shared with me one of the secrets to a happy relationship. She said not to underestimate the value of replying with “oh,” when something the other person says happens to surprise you (perhaps negatively) and you want to say something affirmative. She went on to say “oh” about ten times with varied intonations.
