2nd Cultural Study Square


This is a Kolam.  It was inspired by the South Indian Kolam.  They are drawn daily with rice flour.  I chose this pattern for its ability for freedom in its design along, keeping a rigid template.  It really keeps consistent guidelines and yet creative freedom for the artist.  Here is a link that I drew most of my inspiration from

I am happy with the results.  It is a beautiful combination of colors.  Henna, orange and aqua.  K~

Micro farming update

I made a new condo for my crickets.  I have since switched them around.  The older born crickets are on top.  The (hopefully soon) baby crickets are in the middle.  The (mating) crickets are on the bottom.
