"Telephone # 20"
monotype by Mick Mather
I know that I promised to show at least one of the images from this series of monotypes. I'll likely show a few more since listening to something that my friend, Lisa Sarsfield, had to say in a comment recently. To briefly recap, my thinking was that these were not quite there as regards perspective and, for me, even the composition feels a bit forced. I've since changed my mind a bit because of the iconic nature of this series, The TV Dinner Series and The Toast Series yet to be shown. As before, stay tuned. :)

Oh I just love to see my name in **lights!** Thankyou. A different colour font is also sufficiant:)
Glad to see I said something that helped you to post a singular photo because I really like it!It's great if you see it in a different light too. Better communication.
I looks relaxed (if an image of a phone can look relaxed!) and for me it has connotations (sp!) with good news, celebration. Perhaps it's the colours and the composition that does that for me. Maybe it's the female gene too. Hmmm. Love the index page, I didn't notice it in the thumbnails. Over here the phone book pages are very thin, I have only tried to work with them once in a collage and they wrinkled badly. I have since learnt about surface tension!Thanks for sharing!

Oh, was just thinking about the iconic nature. I am glad to see the old phone's immortalised here! Hard to believe they are actually small enough to loose now! (Or is it just me who looses phones? temporarily of course!)

Thanks to you for tipping the scales here, Lisa. I suppose we're our own worst critic much of the time and it helps me to have input. It's true that you sent my thinking in another way and I'll keep my promise to show a few more of these.

Didn't I say something about velvet? That phone would make a beautiful carpet!

I believe that you did Hélène. A carpet? Jeepers! Now there's a great idea ... reprogram the computer aided loom back there you people! :D

I think I've made a stand in regards to how I feel about these. I'm glad that you liked seeing the tumbnail grouping and that you like this one. As mentioned, I will show a few more of them as opportunities arrise.
