The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,100 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

North Beach Storm Color Palette Temari

IMG_1672Newest Temari group color palette arrived with a recent storm here on the island. Lots of debris blown ashore that isn’t common to my beach front. The clouds cleared off showing a pale turquoise sky, the waters below still churning were blues and greens. The varied beach debris was so thick and varied in browns and yellows and soft golds that it was a whole tapestry. And, voila! a color palette was born. I love the way each pattern sets up the colors and how each accents the drama with it’s own unique forms.
