Art Every Day- Day 12

I'm really drawn to patterns in nature. The way leaf shapes repeat, how rows of corn line up, how spots on a giraffe relate to each other. It's never exactly the same, but it can be predictable in its  consistency. Variations on a theme, which creates a type of visual rhythm. Anyway, that's something I'm thinking about when I'm in nature. Which I was today, taking pics of the turning leaves. I also whipped up this giraffe painting, based on one of the lovlies at our zoo in Columbia. Did you know their tongues are blue?!! We took a vote in my house, and the decision was 'no tongue' in the painting. There you go-- art by committee.
