Calculations, notes and test marks in a variety of hard and soft mediums, some with labels, tape, small objects, etc., collaged or glued onto primarily board or canvas 

characterize this series. I put the works on a clipboard so I could move them 

around as I worked in different areas of my house and studio. Many of the exactly 100 works were done in preparation for other series of sculptures and paintings between 1975 and 2002. All images are 7 x 10 inches on 12- x 16-inch board.
