sign of chaos
the sign of chaos from wikipedia
The bead -doodle is becoming more a mental object than a physical object. My skill does not equal my desire to create. The simple childlike sun has morphed into the signpost to everywhere. I remember how the sign of chaos is portrayed as a circle with eight arrows coming out signifying chaos' infinate creative possibilities. I think if I am very careful and use the sun in the bead doodle as a guide I can make a beady chaos sign. Will that be my project for February. There is a lot of room for this to morph. Thursday I work on my chaos sign. I spend a lot of time measuring and counting only to realize with a three bead start a simple count of three will produce eight rays.
not quite a chaos sign
Above is my first attempt at a chaos sign.My bead-doodle has lovely yellow rays but I wasn't making it for rays. The red circle didn't come out even as well as the bead-doodle did.
