She's going into the kiln for the last firing tonight... finally!
Day 8 of 30 "Kiln glass frit paintings" in 30 days
"Man, that doesn't even look like me", I thought when I saw the blue. Strange.
After pondering this for a bit, my mind landed on chameleons~ and that brings us to the new thing I've learned for today, January 8th.
Everyone knows that chameleons can change their color to blend in with their surroundings, but did you know that they have the most complex eyes of all reptiles? I didn't. Chameleons' eyes work independently of each other, allowing them to look at two different objects at the same time, adjusting the depth of field in each eye according to what they look at. They can see 360 degrees around them at any time! Pretty tricky to keep one eye watching out for predators from afar, and the other eye sharply honed in on someone's tuna sandwich. I'm glad human eyes don't work like a chameleon's. Can you imagine driving like that? Or going on a date? or trying to make art?
Here's a wink for you! Stay warm friends~
