It's been over a year since my last update on this project, so here's a new picture. (Previously: 1, 2, 3.) There are also a couple more photos showing it in a little bit more context. It's not growing very rapidly these days, but I just recently put up a new batch, starting on the tertiary color finally. The blue has a lot of filling out to do still, though. Unfortunately, I'm running into paper procurement problems, getting more of the blue to match. I think I have to buy a whole pad of assorted colors art paper just to get a few sheets of the blue I want. Should have thought of that when I was picking it out originally.
Anyway, if you happen to be feeling creative (or wondering what to get me for Christmas :-) remember that this is an audience-participation activity. And "2" is the magic number: The only two rules are that it be 2-dimensional and 2x2 inches. The illustrious list of contributors so far includes Lacey, Pa, Quena, Miriam, Antonia, Emily, and Jenny. Yay for them!
You forgot Cass!
No, I didn't forget, and I very nearly included her. The difference is that she didn't send me something specifically for the wall -- I just appropriated something else she made me. If I included that, I'd have had to include a vast number of other folks, from Neil Gaiman to Kandinsky to Gandhi. I had to draw the line somewhere. :-)
That's not to say that I'm not very appreciative, of course.
