When I Remember Blue...

When I remember blue I think about the Honda I had, and the blue boat that looked like the car was wearing a bike helmet.

Illustration Friday: Beginning

A some point, in the last few weeks, "Beginning" was an IF prompt. After I did this piece I thought it would make a nice post for beginning. Several weeks ago I got to see the Mosaic of Lod at the Legion of Honor Museum. (here) Dating back to about 300 AD, this mosaic is an early example in the annuals of art history. (Not the beginning of art by any stretch, but certainly something durable that left a record for a long time.)

With mosaics on my mind, I kept the fragments of the egg shells from our dyed Easter eggs: Easter being a celebration of beginnings (and endings that morph into beginnings.) The kids weren't interested in the project--so I did my own. Some sort of spiral seemed appropriate--and I wanted to use all the colors.
