Pi times Diameter. The Circumference of a Circle.
High School Geometry was not a strength. We wrote “Proofs,” and I kept wondering when we were going to start drawing circles. Drawing circles never happened. I was on the artist’s page, not the mathematic’s page. Oh, Well.
Now I draw circles. Many circles. I use a template, compass, and ruler.
I somewhat understand the concept of pi. 3.1415926. . . The number goes on and on. Telling us that, so fare, we can never know the exact circumference of a circle. I am intrigued by the computers which are programmed to find the true number representing pi. I hope they never find it. I prefer the idea of infinite. Because,
I will never run out of possibilities for drawing circle designs.
I always Start With A Circle. I use a pen. I have no plan.
I design. I paint. I write a Haiku. I comment. I start again.
