Wandering in Cubism with a straight edge and some jars

I have come to think that my artmaking (as well as my writing) is quite involved—in these lonely times!—with a search for friends, people with whom to talk intimately or imaginatively—free-handledly! People who might understand me a little and wish themselves to be a little understood. (Btw: One may think similarly of Emily Dickinson’s poetry and letter writing.) From this perspective, it might be said that this post is curious to hear of others who may also be exploring Cubist techniques. And these Cubist-ish figures are among my many new friends!
