Kindred Spirits in orange-love requested an ombre background to their 3901 house number. Stratoz was telling me about studies of how the brain edits the world for us, filling in the gaps, making senses synchronous. Seeing is an action. I have gotten better at imagining how a mosaic will look once grouted, how the colors will flow. When I first started grouting the uncertainty was intense. What will happen once I slather the glass with grout? Will the design emerge or will it be fragmented? Ombre reminds me of Impressionist painting, where the artists let the eye blend the dots and strokes of color.
