Picture of the Day ~ 11.06.15

I hadn't decided whether or not I was going to post this page, but since so many of you feel like you can't color or will screw it up, I decided to share this.

This was essentially a tessellation with no particular design already laid out.   To me I saw "flowers" so that's how I decided to color it.   Now that it's colored I actually see other possibilities, but the flowers were what jumped out to me initially.   I was coloring this in the car on the way to a dr. appt. and somehow managed to get off by a block.

I started with the light purple flower that is roughly in the center.  Then I went to the purple ones on either side, the blue one to the right and then I started on the row below that with the red, pink, purple one and came around to do the blue one above it.  That is where I made my error and I didn't catch it until after the teal and green ones.  

When I found the error I was pretty frustrated because if it had just been the one blue flower it would have been easier to fix.   My husband suggested the black diamonds to try and make it look like "blank" space.   That sounded good in theory, but I don't like it in action.   On the next row, to correct things, I just did the "petals" that would have been done if I hadn't made the error and got back on track.    I think those fixes look much better and are less noticeable than the black, so I learned something.

I still have fun with this page, even though I messed it up and that is the important thing.   You really can't color something "wrong" because however you color something is the way it should be :) .

It still looks good to me!

I have a hard time with the pictures that have things that overlap. I have a hard time telling what goes with what so I make "mistakes." But I just try not to care too much anymore. With my hand pain, I can't color very often. I've been working on the same picture for months.

My first impression of the page was stacked cubes, not flowers.

I LOVE that, but I don't know how I would transition the colors right!

When I look at it now, I see stacked cubes.  I couldn't see them when it wasn't colored though.   Now I actually have a hard time seeing the "flowers."   I have to refocus on the brightish yellow one and then I can see the flowers, not the cubes.

      I read 'joyous lessons' as 'joylessness' first.

      I’m always fascinated when someone who was raised not religious & becomes extremely religious. I know 2 people who were raised not very religious Jewish & became very religious.

      I was raised atheist and became very religious in my teens. I was a deep thinking philosophical kid with big emotions, cracking under the pressure of adolescence in an extremely academic environment; Christianity offered me something to help answer the 'why' of it all (although even then, I always believed in the scientific account of the 'how'). I am also - although I didn't understand or have the label for it then - asexual, and the whole notion of no-sex-before-marriage was oddly reassuring to me, like a 'safe' way to date and fall in love with church boys who weren't supposed to want to touch me sexually (spoiler alert: they still did). While I was at university I worked for a Christian organisation and led the youth group at my church, then I got married and moved to a country town where I knew nobody, and the church community was my first 'in' into the community. I was a stay-at-home mother who spent my days going to church playgroup or hosting bible study with other stay-at-home mothers. Regardless of what's happening inside or what your private prayer life is like, when your social group is all religious it helps keep you religious. It's only in the past few years, with my kids all at school, my divorce finalised, working in secular arts organisations, plus time on more forums like this, that I've become a much more liberal Christian who doesn't let it dictate my entire life.

      Looks like that's the Justice Dept response to the Duggar appeal not the Supreme Court final.  Reddit was a bit ahead of themselves.

      Yeah, the conclusion states that writ SHOULD BE denied. This is the Fed's response to The Felons plea. Remember, they were granted an extension until 5/24, so this makes sense.

      And yet Amy gives no fucks. 

      I think that’s pretty standard for the vast majority of people who make 7 figures. Most people don’t make that kind of money without stepping on some necks to get there.
