11:37 pm - Learning to Love Thunderstorms (a work in progress for November is Art Every Day Month)

I first had the idea for this piece a long, long time ago--probably more than 20 years ago, possibly more than 30 years ago. Today, I realized that I could probably realize a decent version of that long-ago sketch and long-held idea. I don't think it's quite done, yet, and I see flaws in my draftsmanship, but it's a lot closer to what I meant to create I've ever gotten before. (YAY!)

This piece is about something that actually happened between my mom and I, when I was a child. The details of the actual scene were somewhat different, but this is the essence of the experience I remember.

11:59 pm - Symmetry Photo Quilt (for November is Art Every Day Month)

I wasn't satisfied with my previous Art Every Day Month entry for today, so I made another:

Click once or twice to zoom in. This is what I call a photo quilt--just pixels, not actually fabric--based on reflecting, rotating, repeating, and embellishing the following cropped photo, which I took on 11/08/14:

.

The original photo didn't work for me as a stand-alone composition, no matter how I cropped it, but I loved the colors and the meandering shapes, so I kept it to experiment with. I'm bemused that a photo taken from Hoffman Marsh on San Francisco Bay resulted in such a Southwestern-looking "quilt."

Here are links to two more of my "photo quilts," both made in 2013:

Bluebird with Autumn Leaves
Cloud Quilt
