This holiday pi watercolor is a variation of my algorithmic painting. Pi is an irrational number that captivated my son as he learned about the endlessness of irrationality. I tried to envision this as he saw it, assigning each number (1-10) a different shade, then painting 3.1415926…and so on. This helped me to recognize the incredible lengths of irrationality, even demonstrating that colorful patterns can emerge from randomness.
I am a careful consumer and prefer to shop small, shop sustainably and/or shop locally. That said, I do love giving gifts and prefer giving something other than a gift card. I love the pageantry around solstice and Christmas but loath the attendant commercialism. The antidote? Shop early, keep a list of ideas year-round and don’t forget to have fun with the process. My favorite gifts were homespun — I used to grow amaryllis for teacher gifts or I support other artists. I am always looking for wrapping paper that is non-denominational, different and playful. I love the experience of opening a well-wrapped package with a thoughtful card. So the studio decided to produce its own line of wrapping paper for the holidays and beyond. So come wrap it up with us.
Matte heavy weight (70#) FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified paper; acid-free with a super smooth finish.
20″ x 29″. Wrapping paper is sold by a single flat sheet. Sheet will be gently rolled and shipped in a corrugated mailing tube.
