More Slices Of Pi


I transferred the drawing to my annunciation painting today. The rest of the day was spent tweaking the tracks to pi, with some time left for the artwork. I'm still not sure if it looks better with the numbers. The whiteness there improves the look but they affect the ultra-clean look. With dark colours like this the printing often looks inferior to the image on the screen, which is another factor to consider. Comments welcome.

I learned that I've sold another two paintings at The Cubby Hole, and one at Dagfields Craft Centre yesterday. Yesterday also I had the notification that Penalties has made it into the Royal Birmingham Society of Artist Spring Open Exhibition, which opens tomorrow night in the R.B.S.A. gallery on St. Paul's Square.

Also today I received the entry forms for the M.O.M.A. Wales Tabernacle Competition and have come up with an idea for that. That picture, and one for the Derbyshire Open will require immediate attention because they have deadlines and specific themes which will require new paintings. I will begin on those when pi is complete.

What graphics software do you use Mark? Looks good but I'd rather see the traditional Pi symbol with the curly top.

Congratulations on your continued successes. Hard work and diligence pay off. Keep that momentum going!

I agree with John about the Pi symbol. Plus, the tail of the star bisects the Pi you have making my eyes see two T's.

Greetings Mark,

I love your poster design but prefer the base of the previous one as less is more.

Congratulations on everything going on in your life.

Warmest regards,
Egmont
