Sometimes when I working on the computer and bored (like now), I play with MS Paint. I think of these little pictures as stained glass, and they’re based on something I used to do with crayons as a kid. I’d make a black line that swirled around and criss-crossed itself all over the page, and then color in the spaces in all different colors. The only rule was that no two adjacent spaces could be the same color. One thing I miss dreadfully as an adult is no art class. For me, art class was always like play therapy. Now I play with yarn, and its texture and color and form captivate my mind and hands and relax me, but the stuff I make is generally pretty functional. There is nothing functional about these little pictures. They’re just pretty.
