The word of the day at Dictionary.com is Ogdoad! Do you know what it means?
The number 8!
I started a new online class with Carla Sonheim today called, “Fingerpainting – Fingerprinting. I decided to create a color palette for my color journal that I previously showed you here.
And thinking of the Word of the Day, I decide to create 72 fingerprints (since it is divided by 8) for my color exploration:
I wrote down the acrylic paint colors I used on the right side. I started with the yellow and then continued adding and mixing colors to it so the colors would relate to each other. It was a fun exercise!
I also decided to create a few birds – with only 8 fingerprints for each bird:
It looks like the reddish-pink (mama) bird is talking to the (blue-green) bird about it’s baby bird. What do you think she is saying?
Now for the “crazy” part of my title! I have been feeling a bit crazy tonight because the computer is having issues… so I am posting this late in the evening after a long day. Always difficult to get back into the swing of things after a 3-day weekend!
Which reminds me of the card game I played as a kid called, “Crazy 8’s!” Have you ever played it?
Oh, and it just so turns out that today – when I’m writing this is post is – September 8th! LOL!
Happy Creating! 🙂
