Meanwhile, however, while sitting around waiting for healing to occur I discovered The Pi Project which is a collaboration put together by local Vancouver (WA, not Canada) fiber/textile artist Sally Sellers. Sally was clever enough to notice that March 3 of this year will be 3/14/15, the first digits of pi = 3.1415 ad infinitum, so she asked artists from all over the planet to make 9.5" square flags with any number from 1 - 0. There was a great article on the project in our local paper, The Columbian , which explains it all.
Being temporarily one armed this was right up my alley and provided several evenings worth of entertainment. First came Four:
And then came 0:
The ouroboros seemed to me to be the perfect representative for 0 - you can't get much more circular than when you consume your own tail.
Next on the agenda is a return to printmaking - first comes the sketch and then the decision: should it be woodblock or should it be etching? Guess I should do the sketch first....
