Turning the linear circular

Purple is the simultaneous perception of blue and red electromagnetic radiation, not to be confused with Violet which is its own wavelength nearer to the ultraviolet end of the spectrum. Purple is in a way an illusion and it makes an unexpectedly useful circle (color wheel) out of our linear perceivable spectrum. If that's not an example of circular thinking synthesizing the macro and the micro, I don't know what is.

for the next 100 days and nights

Classes are back on and I'm not sure how much I'll be getting around to keeping up on this. I should have some good stuff to post from classes soon. But if I'm as busy as I was last semester, I probably wont have anything ready until after its all over. But I am getting a little better at managing my time so who knows. I probably won't be getting around to much more location painting, however that doesn't mean I won't be getting in the practice elsewhere. This couscous, for example, was malleable and delicious while warm.
