Mile 18: Unity. Circles and Triangles.

This marathon is getting harder! I’m definitely slowing down now that I’m near the end. The principle of design focused on in this painting is UNITY. Paintings that contain unity have common elements throughout them, whether it be colors or shapes. Pieces without unity appear a bit confusing or disjointed. Whitney pointed out that a lack of unity in life, as in art, can make us feel “stretched too thin.” As difficult as it can be to do, it is imperative to find a common thread in all the things we do in life that ties everything together and makes us feel complete. This is something I definitely should work on. If I could figure out how to incorporate ART into WORK I think I’d be a much happier person!

I’m pretty happy with this mile. The design was somewhat difficult to implement, especially because I was sketching it out right over the last mile and I couldn’t see what I was doing! Once I had the lines drawn, I basically created my own “paint by numbers” pattern. I know it’s hard to tell, but there is a pattern to the way the colors were dispersed (and if you find a mistake just don’t tell me!!). It wasn’t my intention for the colors to clump like they did and I was really frustrated when I realized that it was happening, but I actually like the finished effect. There are no colors (or shapes) that are not represented in multiple places on the canvas, so hopefully I’m doing UNITY justice!

        My spouse and i got very ectitasc Raymond managed to carry out his researching through your ideas he obtained using your weblog. It’s not at all simplistic just to choose to be freely giving solutions which often most people have been selling. So we recognize we now have the website owner to thank because of that. The most important illustrations you have made, the straightforward web site menu, the friendships you give support to engender it’s got most terrific, and it’s aiding our son and our family know that that topic is cool, and that’s highly vital.

      There are actually a numebr of details like that to take into consideration. That is a nice level to bring up. I supply the thoughts above as general inspiration however clearly there are questions just like the one you bring up where an important thing can be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if finest practices have emerged around issues like that, however I’m positive that your job is clearly identified as a good game. Each boys and girls really feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the remainder of their lives.
