Too Much Goldfield
New Telephone Number for My Gallery in Goldfield, Nevada
New phone number for my gallery at the Stop in Goldfield, Nevada. The first image is visually clean and the second image has the necessary hokum required for publishing in Goldfield, Nevada.
775-237-8267 is a Google Voice number which routes any call from this number to my current cell phone number. When I see a call coming in from this number, I know to pick up. With so many spam call these days, I rarely pick up a call in real time unless I recognize it.
My geologist friend has used Google Voice for many years in his business. It’s free, at least at this point with the basics. Google lets you pick a variety of numbers, all of which in my case were not listed as Goldfield but they were in the right area code.
Using an online number to letter convertor, I finally selected this number after about fifteen tries. This number had some easy to remember possibilities as you can see. The trick is to not select any number with a “1” or a “0” as there are not any letters tagged with numbers. Your chance of finding something good with a zero or a one are basically nil.
The new telephone number for my Gallery in Goldfield is: 775-237-8267 Plus 1 for international callers.

Flower Child With a Goldfield Soul
Okay, we definitely know that Barbi Benton was a flower child, although a few years late to the actual party. How do we know she had a Goldfield soul? Because she had semi-magical powers, the kind only found in Goldfield. She was the only woman in Hugh Hefner’s life that he actually listened to and went along with. Her spell lasted only a few years but the menfolk of Goldfield recognize and respect that she was able to do this at all. Truly a powerful and bewitching woman.
Time to Be Honest
I think I’ve been leading people on. I don’t want them to get the wrong impression. We in Goldfield are solidly on the side of bringing the padded bar back. For most of us, it never really left. Whether in crusty, stain absorbing velour, or stylish Naugahyde, Goldfieldians will do everything possible (except spending money) on bringing the padded bar back. That includes the attendant smoke drenched vibe of the late and pointless 1970s. The only real updates will be the required paintings of our Maximum Leader for Life, JCF. But you already knew that.
Giving Up and Trying Again With Hand Lettering
Proof of concept. I’ve never been able to hand letter. Never. But what if I just gave up and used my scrawl on certain images for a certain effect? This points in a good direction. I used a blue color felt pen on lined note paper, not working that carefully. I know I could do neater. The quotation was then photographed, the white background dropped out, and then applied to the base image. There’s something here worth exploring.
Fantastic shot in Italy by Ellen von Unwerth. The model might be Claudia. Started out by taking an iPhone photo in bad light of the image which was in a book and couldn’t easily be flattened. So, I left the curl of the book as you see in the top of the half-colorized image. Hper-saturated and filtered and angles made right by distorting the image. Desaturated the image afterwords at the spine point in the page. These kind of examples are my design experiments and never sold and never attributed to anyone but the photographer.
