Lines on Paper

Lines on Paper

While trying (and failing) to create some sort of folded/creased sculptures, I happily discovered this composition of crossing lines on one of the discarded pieces of paper.

We picked up our Christmas tree for the house today.  It wasn’t quite a Charlie Brown tree, but it was probably one of the smallest they had.  We went to a place in Riverwest off of Humboldt Boulevard in Milwaukee called Kellners Greenhouses.  It doesn’t look like much from the street but you don’t see the huge greenhouses stretching back a half a block from the road.

These are my son’s old alphabet stacking blocks.  And he loves playing with them.  Well, I have to admit, that I love playing with them too.  Spelling out words,  seeing how high I can stack them, building pyramids – all the things a middle aged man is supposed to do, right?  No, you say?
