Fiona's first four letters

I feel as if I'm off to a better start this year, building a letter a week into my art schedule.

These are my first four letters - and I must admit my alphabet is a little bit quirky.  The full story can be read over at my blog; but here they are - fun letters made out of coloured pencils…

A - with an Amethyst theme…


B - with a Burgundy theme…


C - with a Crimson theme…


D - with a Denim theme…


I am poking the letters into really really fine sand in a tall vase then trying to get a good shot from directly above.

I'm not sure how the letters will appear in a final piece just yet, but hopefully that will happen!

  1. How cool is that! Do you have 26 different colours to work with? ;-p

  2. What a treasure you received from your friend, Fiona! And such a wonderful installation you have begun - talk about 'thinking outside the box' {square}! Aside from the sumptuous selection of colors, I love how the shots you show on Paper Ponderings belie the fact that the pencils are organized in the shape of letters. Looking forward to seeing more...

    1. You can imagine I had a lot of fun photographing them Lisa, but wasn't sure if everybody here would want to go wandering with me…maybe next time I'll post some! And what an amazing gift...

    1. Thanks Valerie - I felt a wee bit overwhelmed, but just love them! And it is fun trying to get hem to work in the sand as well - not as easy as it might look!

  5. Amazing gift and amazing results ... hmmm I am very interested in seeing where this leads or not. Could be quite simply - ephemeral pencil art! Love it!
