When I reach into my mailbox I’m always hopeful that there will be something waiting for me besides bills or junk mail. I love to know that someone took the time to address my name and address on an envelope containing a message that was intended specifically for me . . . the old fashioned way. Snail mail. Keeping us connected. If you are familiar with the Fibonacci series of numbers, you will see that each mailbox has a number that may not make sense, and it shouldn’t because these are fictional characters in my painting. The Fibonacci numbers, named after Leonardo Fibonacci, 13th century Italian mathematician, is the unending sequence 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, …where each term is defined as the sum of its two predecessors. Not bad for a non-math person to know! This sequence shows up in all kinds of things — ferns, leaves, snails, patterns in the human body. I love Nature. She’s so smart.
