Rainbow color wheels in thread + ink

How are you visualizing your current project? Are you INTO it? Is it expansive? I will volley over to you this idea. If you choose to see your 365 [0r 30-day or 100-day] project as full of potential and opportunity... [rather than a weight, a requirement, an item on your to-do list]... you are more likely to finish the project and yield positive results in terms of learning something new, delving into a medium, figuring something out, even roaming into new unexpected territory.

To make the pie chart shape, I drew a circle using a lid and pencil. Then I sewed the circle, slowly stitch by stitch... and then the lines to make up the sections of the wheel. I was contemplating drawing a different pattern in each section of each wheel but thought it would be more bold to keep one pattern in different colors of ink.

My sewing machine was calling to me from the corner of the art table. When I don't use it for a few weeks I miss sewing, I miss making marks with thread. So I made some collaged pie charts last year in my art journal and on index cards as part of The Circle workshop and ICAD 2016... and the theme - whether you see it as a divided circle or a trivial pursuit playing piece or a color wheel - keeps returning to my mind. I would love to explore this in a bunch of mediums and so this is a continuation of that idea. Rainbow doodle patterns in dip pen using J. Herbin and Noodlers inks. 

Here's one of the 3x5" index card collages from 2016, isn't it cute?

Also, just so you know...  the 8th Annual Index-Card-a-Day Challenge is around the corner!

The 365 Somethings Project is an on-going project, a thread through the calendar year. This is a project I'm doing along with Hanna Andersson. It is a flexible approach, working in batches - sets - series toward a quantitative goal.
