Have you seen the people gather round the turnin’ of the drum … the passion of creation … new life has begun! As the drum turns, and imaginary drums roll–folks gather ‘round the press in anticipation of the monotype’s entrance. The monotype, unaware of the probing and discerning eyes which are cast upon it, and with shuffling and interjectional gait, makes its entrance on the stage— Sometimes amounting to no more than a flash in the pan—other times, “Ahhh! —Would it be?? Could it be!!..more than I had planned; just as I had dreamed!!” … visual gold, of more value than lucre to the devoted artist.
