In the tagline of my blog, I mention "what I'm learning" as one of the reasons for the blog. So sorry...you're stuck with my art projects right now, because not only is it what I'm learning, it's the only --the ONLY-- thing I'm doing these days! Bill asked me yesterday if I thought the workload was going to continue like this. I think it probably will. And of course, there's the part of me, though I'm not a perfectionist exactly, that wants to only turn in a strong effort, and wouldn't think of showing up in class without my work done! As he observed, you get out of something what you put into it... so I ought to be getting a lot out of these two art classes!
This project is in design...the assignment was to illustrate pure symmetry, approximate symmetry, and asymmetry all in one cohesive work, using only grayscale cut paper. I was inspired by a photo I took of a graveyard in Charleston, looking through the wrought iron. My photos are coming in really handy as sources of inspiration!
