I have a tendency to procrastinate, and all this Covid quarantining is draining my creativity. However deadlines are a great motivator for me. There was a midnight deadline to send the photo of my Lone robin to the SFQG. By midnight that night this is what I’d accomplished. Although all 6 elements were there, I hadn’t finished the top row. I emailed the photo above to Julia and kept working till 2 AM when I finished the top row. That’s when I sent Julia the photo below.
Even though this won the prize at the SGQG meeting, I wasn’t happy with the top row. I decided that I want an orange diamond in the center of the top row, and different orange curves on either side. I have taken apart the top row and am redoing it before the EBHQ deadline of January 1. Since I am the one picking the 4 prize winners for EBHQ, I won’t put my name in the hat.
