Our prompt this week is geometry – a course I barely passed in high school. The shapes themselves are beautiful but figuring out the formula to measure, etc just wasn’t interesting to me.
I originally pulled out photos of bridges, piers and flowers, etc to share but my brain did a complete 180 degree turn on me. Because of some health issues and the pandemic, I haven’t been able to get out to take photographs. I’ve been reading a lot (My mom and aunt like the same kinds of books I do so we pass them back and forth.) and taking a couple of online classes to learn how to draw – something I’ve always wanted to do. Well, I still can’t draw by hand but drawing with the computer is going much better.
Aren’t these the coolest things? The computer figures it all out for you once you learn what values to input.
Once you learn how to make the shapes, you can learn how to make patterns from them. My grandson, who is now 5, has about a thousand little cars which were the inspiration for the pattern on the right. You have to be very careful walking through his room or take a chance of stepping on one and taking a fall.
And last is a project done for a watercolor class. Happy Easter!
