Mixed Media Monday (On Wednesday)

I think this sign will be done soon :)
I've been adding to it a little bit at a time with the creative prompts over at Mixed Media Monday. This week's prompt was "numbers."


I did a little research on Prime Numbers for another project (see farther below). The numbers strung up here are what I'm calling the childhood primes. All the prime number ages of childhood. So many of the friends we welcome to our door are children - so I thought this would fit perfectly on my "welcome and peace" sign.

And then I have a brother turning 47 this year. When I originally made this little 2X4 I found out what a special kind of prime number 47 is.

I added the word descriptors of "47" that I found in wikipedia as a strung up addition.

He's a really smart guy - so I think he'll appreciate it - in a geeky kind of way ;)

Elizabeth said...

this is fascinating -- it's prompted me to look into the significance of prime numbers -- your art is such a fine combination of the esoteric and homespun, Kim -- thank you for that!

Kimmie said...

The cool thing about primes is that they have only one multiplier - the number one and itself. It occurred to me that maybe these years could be significant "self" years. Not in a bad way. Maybe they are markers of - "now you will grow some more in your "self."" ..... I know .... I'm out there :)
