I spend time immersed in numbers, in their shapes, and how straight and curved connect with each other. Each house number takes on its own personality, as I wend my way around them. This 340 reminded me that I also spend this time immersed in color, contrast, line, all elements of composition. Learning about composition was exciting, a new language. The people who commission house numbers from Nutmeg Designs understand this language, whether explicitly or implicitly.
Abstract art allows composition to speak freely, and it is a joy to spend time with each number imagining what will make it glow or pop or infuse a house with color.
