The crane



So this is a spillover from last year, 2013, when I made a bunch of kaleidoscopic blobs -- 2013 project y. The final one in the series was to be made from a photo of a construction crane on a building site across the street. It took so long to resolve because what I initially expected to fall into place quickly actually ended up taking ahellofalada work compared to the earlier pieces, and I've been taking attempts at this in dribs and drabs. And then you have to decide when to stop working on it. So here is the crane, showing regress from final, to drafts, to the original photos.
