Simple regularity like picket fence or the squares on a quilt.
Alternation - two different elements, sizes, etc.
Inversion - one up one upside down
Irregular recurrence- shape or motif reappears in unexected intervals
Radiation - units fan out from a central point like a Gothic Rose window.
I like having structure and focus--but I must have focus to be structured. Something I need to learn in my art as well as work!
Today was baby boy's (ya right) first day of school. You dont' even want to know what came out of his mouth when I picked him up after work (or rather he was waiting for me with his Dad who left work early to get him).....I can't blame him because it was his Dad who told him to say it..LOL...but anyway the first day of school was good. He barely said good-bye to me as I was unpacking all the things from the teachers list, and before I knew it, he was at his desk, pencil in hand and writing in his "Morning Journal". I guess I'm not needed anymore :( No more sniffles as I leave on the first day. He's all grown up, all 7 years of him!
Change again the theme--but in an entirely different manner. After being gone for an entire week he and I watched a movie last night on the couch and there was barely enough room for the two of us....(mostly my fault) but he took a big enough space up as well! Where did my baby boy go??? He's even pumping gas now for me.
sigh.....That's a good sigh..I hate doing that :)
Until next time!
