What was Caleb's muse?
Jacob was drawing a picture of an animated character as a farmer, and Caleb wanted to draw also.(He just told me that when I read your comment to him.)My comment is that I like the fact that he drew a shadow under the butterfly, and I also like his representation of the sun (not circular - and with neat rays).
Wow! Another great artist in the family. Fantistic job.Grandpa
Very well done Caleb! I wish I had half the artistic ability that you do! (And that is the truth!)
I wish that too, Tony! Sometimes while teaching I have to draw a shape to illustrate a concept.I preface any drawing I do by saying something like:"PRETEND this is a circle."(Maybe most mathematicians are not good artists and that's why students are always told not to go by the diagram!)
I disagree Heidi. You can be an artist and a mathematician too. Maybe not a painter, but look at Piet Hein. And look at your blog. I see an artistic streak.(by the way, does your hit locator work?)
Now that you mention it, I remember a talk by Sir Roger Penrose in which he used lovely overhead transparencies he had hand drawn (one including the little mermaid!). He's more of a physicist than a mathematician, but there is a lot of overlap, and he was certainly gifted at drawing.As to my hit locator, it has been saying for three days now, "Updates begin tomorrow."Tomorrow never comes. :-(I think I'm stuck in a time warp!Actually I checked the FAQ's where I downloaded it, and it said it sometimes takes 3 days to begin working, so I'll try to be patient.I hope you'll check in again in a few days. I would sure love to have Norway show up on my hit locator! :-)
