Let me start my post by saying that the title above begat the nomenclature for my 5” x 5” dot art paintings. In particular the letters “FO” appeared (and still do) on a prescription medication I’ve been taking since early August of 2005. The drug helps with triglycerides. While staying in Memphis, I was staring at one of these pills when the idea to play with the letter “o,” and other alphabet letters, came to me. The possible words formed, however, have nothing to do with the paintings. They are simply arbitrary names in spite of the fact that some of my titles may provoke giggles.

As for the painting design, it consists of four squares containing spirals of dots inspired by the active hurricane season. Each spiral includes a transition from light to dark using tints of red, blue and purple. Again, I painted with colors already mixed. After completing this one, I was tired of the colors.


  1. The title made me think of "Fee fi fo fum." :D I like the progression from light to dark. Nice work, Mo!

    Thank you.

    I like that Daisy.

    Earlier this year I painted "fe." I haven't progressed to an "i" or "u" series yet.
