Octet. Comment so far

Posted by Sermarr

The paint is drying before anything more can be done. It is interesting to me that I meant for this to be much more abstract and unstructured. But I must have been channeling my very structured,disciplined mother in law because it came out much more symmetrical than I anticipated!

Centered on the church

Posted by Sermarr

And her friends and many good deeds were channeled through the church. Tragedy struck her with the loss of all nine siblings And later the loss of both her sons within three months in their early forties. she said that her faith sustained her.

The Octet begins

Posted by Sermarr

This is another rompecabeza but very formally structured to begin. And now I have to begin. There is nothing more exciting than holding your breathe for the first mark. Then the other flows out in a joyous river...if it's a lucky day!?

Beginning the rompecabeza

I'm starting a new form of embedded construction. Using many past things that have worked...but in a new format. A rompecabeza. And it is very difficult to figure out how to go about it.
