Enjoyed Yayoi Kusama's work, she looks like a Lady Bug, ha, ha.

I have just started a Color Theory and Design class. One of our first assignments was to "evaluate our stash." Turns out, I have an overabundance of dots. I could fit right in with these folks.

I have been collecting dot materials, plan on making something for my daughter and have an idea, just need to see if I can sketch it out.
