“Bird-on-the-brain,” or simply “Bird-brain”??

I’ve been searching for bird shapes in my tessellations.Ā  I found two that were very similar:

1-1-1-3Ma
1-1-1-3Ma
1-1-1-4a
1-1-1-4a

The only difference between these two patterns is the position of the bird wing. The wing is up in the first example, and down in the second.

Here’s a checkerboard of the two birds:

1-1-1-3M, 1-1-1-4 Checkerboarda
1-1-1-3M, 1-1-1-4 Checkerboarda

The background contains its own shapes, too:

1-1-1-3M, 1-1-1-4 Checkerboardb
1-1-1-3M, 1-1-1-4 Checkerboardb

Now, I’m playing with different combinations of these shapes in different colors, and I like the result.

Tell me, do you like this design??

  1. I like the colour effect at the bottom as it looks like a mass of birds flying up and thining out as they go higher. Like the colours too. .. off to comment on your last post šŸ™‚

  2. I can’t find the “out of the closet” post – I saved it somewhere safely!!!! I was going to say I relate to your experience of ” oohhh that’s nice” reaction to my ideas …. now all i hear is Mrs Brown (TV movie) saying it and I can laugh haha at the people. I got so frustrated I started my own group of textile artists (motto anything goes and it is good haha). We’ve been a small group for our 3 years but had an article in the local paper a couple of weeks ago (with pictures of a few of us with our art up a tree) the whole article captured who we are as a group). We’ve had people coming out of the woodwork so excited to find us. SO there are so many of us “creatives” out there who don’t follow the crowd WE just have to find each other. Glad I found you and your art!! AND we still need to figure how to get you to NZ šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚
