Good morning Everyone!
I thought I’d share a couple of “Kayla-isms” with you this morning, along with some views of my re-done abstract painting.
1) Beautiful Music
Some of you may recall that our family is gifted in the art of gentle satire. One day last week, Kayla was bemoaning some terrible fact of her existence, such as her parent’s inexplicable insistence that her room does need to be picked up every now and then, and I responded with that gentle satire we are known for. I don’t think she appreciated it, because she looked at me as she was getting out of the car and said, “Thanks for the symphony, Mom!”
2) Upside Down
Kayla recently acquired an iPod Touch with her own money, and apparently watched a YouTube video on how to make your hair longer, because she entered the living room, sat down in our armchair, then flipped herself over where her feet were sticking up in the air and her head (and consequently her hair) were sticking upside down. More than a little curious, Mark and I inquired as to her new sitting position, only to be told that the YouTube video had said that one way to grow your hair long was to blow-dry it upside down. When I started to laugh, she wanted to know what was so funny!
3) The Abstract Finished
A couple of week’s ago, in the art retrospective post that I published, I showed you this picture of my first abstract painting, and told you that I had decided to go back and do some more work on it:
After a few more weeks of work, here is the final version of the painting, which is called Fibonacci Zero: The Beginning (from Genesis: “In the beginning…the earth was without form and void and the Spirit of God moved over the waters…”):
Here is a different view:
And finally, a third view looking at the painting from the right towards the left:
I like it a lot better now; the colors are richer and darker.
Have a great day everyone!
