Nameless traveling nano in progress

While I always take pencil, paint, brushes, and paper when I travel, I am not always in the mood to carry a Big Arches Block. A small one -- 7x10" -- is a no-brainer and fits into a pocket of my carry-on bag. The 12x16" block needs either suitcase space or virtually all of my tote bag. As I am just back from presenting Alternative Careers: Getting to There at Chapman Law School in Orange, CA, I am happy to report that the Big Block was a good traveler.

I started with the idea that squares and rectangles could and should be connected, and finished the drawing before leaving Minnesota on Sunday morning.  It took a day to complete the Davy's Gray outlines, and I began to think of calling this "squares and rice grains," "printed circuits" or "paper cut-outs."  By Monday night, with a lot of color, those names had faded away, and this nano has no name.
