The 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi have begun. Did you see the opening ceremonies last weekend? I skipped the part where the athletes walk in, but I’m so glad that I caught the main show.
Those “Onion Domes”…how I love those shapes! The colors! I thought they did a fabulous job with the visual effects.
OOOPS! Holy Spirograph, Batman!
(I found these photos at The Daily Mail, click HERE to see their full article)
So…I’ve been working on a new series of patterns and designs based on the Polish papercutting art called “Wycinanki”. I’m half Polish, so I find this whole art form pretty neato and very meaningful. And all of these onion shapes are steering me into a slightly different shape direction than the traditional shapes that are used! I just sketched these tonight.
Below are the two patterns that I’ve finished, I’m going to call the collection, “How Does Your Garden Grow?”.
Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary…..*smiles*
