Hi all of you terrific folks!

It's been a while but I'm back with a new campaign of Kickstarter. This one is only tangentially concerned with the Word Project but there is a connection. I have been slowly working on new words for Volume 2 but reality keeps rearing its ugly head. If this new campaign is successful, I will have some time to work on new words- enough to get to the critical mass needed for publication.

If you go to Kickstarter and search for my projects you'll see the new art works. It is a "Make 100" project, so I have to get back to the workroom just in case. 

I hope you are well and hanging in there. Every time I send out a copy of the book, I say a little gratitude to you all. Thanks again and forever.

Cheers,

Polly

Happy 2014 from The Word Project!

Hi everyone-

To start 2014 off right, I have been doing a rather thorough cleaning/decluttering of my workroom and in the process I came across a distressingly thick folder of rejection notices from publishers regarding "The Word Project." I also had the fulfillment list for "Publishing the Word Project" in the same folder. I really appreciated how the rejections no longer stung thanks to the support for "The Word Project" from you wonderful folks. Thank you all, again, from the bottom of my heart.

Here is a piece from my "Esopus Mystics" series I completed recently to be part of my first solo exhibit in NYC coming up this March. (!!!!!!!) I added the quote for a New Year's greeting. May your year be full of joy, gratitude & abundance.

Cheers,

Polly

Hi everyone-

There are quite a few of you whom I have never had the pleasure to meet. Here is an article with a video done recently about my work: http://www.dailyfreeman.com/articles/2012/11/09/life/doc509c1c1765006635096434.txt?viewmode=fullstory

Pleased to meet you!

Boo!

Hi everyone!

I am nearing the end of my day-job season and looking forward to having more time to work on art. Winters are rather lean but I have several projects in the works that will keep me busy.

I have 2 solo shows in 2013 (Provincetown, MA and Kingston, NY) so I will be working on new pieces for those. I hope to be able to get a good chunk of work done on Volume 2 of The Word Project. I'll post new words as they are finished. And finally, I am developing an animation project, a short, with an artist/animator I met through the New York Foundation For The Arts.

I hope any and all of you on the east coast of the US survived Sandy and are okay.

Happy Hallowe'en from the entire staff here at Word Project World Headquarters!
