Celebrate fall with dots

Yesterday I read this post on a book.

That led to learning about Yayoi. Everything from the title to her dots made me wonder. People, teachers probably thought she was weird and wanted her to stop. And Yayoi wasn’t sorry. Why should she be. I’ve seen this artist before but what, dots everywhere! I like to paint with dots.

Here we go.

A tree seems like a good way to start fall. Soon the leaves will be falling. The cold nights are approaching. Then comes glorious spring. Now is the time to get rid of dead weight, all that prevents us from not being sorry.

To create this tree I used tempera paint and a Bruno Munari tutorial. Begin with one trunck. The trunk divides in two and contiune knowing each proceeding branch gets thinner.

What about a Kandinsky tree?
