They closed down the place I work for a day in honor of Good Friday. Or they decided to give everyone a 3-day weekend that just happened to coincide with the celebration of Easter. Whatever.
The point is I have an unexpected and unpaid vacation day and I feel like Dustin Hoffman in that movie, "Rain Man" as the minutes counted down to The Peoples Court TV show with Judge Whopner! What ever shall I do with all this spare time?
So I decided to use this time to present the work I completed in March, 2015! That's the month that we just finished. It's 31 days long. Yeah, definitely 31 days long. April has only 30 days. 30 is a even number. You can divide it by 2 with no remainder. Yeah, definitely an even number. 31 is not an even number ... it's a prime number ... Oh Oh! Prime number! ... I'm a very good driver!
Man, I need to make myself some coffee! (a brief time passes) Ah, better now!
A few weeks back (2010 Quasi-Fresh - March. 2/25/15) I showed a Work-in-Progress.
I said (concerning this design), "The tricky bit will be selecting the right pallet of colors. If I do it right, it'll look Fabulous!"

This next one was a fluke that inspired another new development which kept my interest for most of the rest of the month of March.
|Cloud Grey Window. 3/13/15|
So I started a little quest to explore ways to deliberately add 'flukes' to my designs that would preserve the symmetry of the outer edges of the designs, but allow great freedom for Randomness to do it's thing within the designs!

|Circular Checker Board. 3/16/15|
Well, I couldn't leave that alone, so I played with the checker board motif again in my next design, but I also went back to the internal randomness quest as well. Oh, and since St. Patrick's Day came and went while I was coloring it, I added a layer of green to the design in honor of the holiday!

I showed it 'in progress',
|I mean this one.|

|Easter 2015. 3/24/15|
(but if you follow it long enough, you end up on top! Hmm... Did I just find an Easter metaphor in my Easter Egg design? If I'd done it deliberately, it wouldn't have worked - but since it was a fluke, something unplanned, just one of those things... yeah, I'll take it! Yay!) Happy Easter!

I couldn't resist! I have to play this video too!
Oh, and here's Kevin Koastie!
