What does E = mc2 mean? Art Journal chalk 8/1/13

I was going to skip this challenge. I don't keep a journal - never have. And I don't often "paint" a page. When I scrap a quote or poem, it tends to look like a poster. And then this morning I read the Beakman & Jax panel in the Sunday funnies (the Washington Post delivers all the Sunday supplements on Saturday.) A child had asked "What does E = mc2 mean". Jax (Joc Church) gave his usual clear explanation, tailored for elementary age kids to understand. And at the bottom, upside down as it always is, was his addendum - the answer on my page. He identified the author only as "an artist friend." I love the concept, and immediately pictured dancing squares of colors. So here it is - not quite a poster! And it was FUN!

 

All the designers & collections are listed in the EXIF file, but not all the individual papers - there are 28 of them, not including the background!

This caught my eye in the gallery. All those coloured squares look fun and a good quote to use. Did you create your own word art?... it looks great.

Oh how fun and pretty! Great job with the beautiful background papers - the musical score and blended papers. The colorful squares are so creative and what a wonderful way to commemorate that quote!

As a science teacher this must have been a stretch for you!!! I was looking at the title and wondering how you came up with this page from E=mc squared... but the answer had me laughing, energy is definitely a product of music and colour!! Isn't it great to break away from the usual?? I love that you chose to do this not only in your style but also in what you know...

Oh wow! I agree with everyone on this page. Into my favs. Well done... (XYZ belongs in the alphabet, not math.. According to me, never understood it.)

Lovely, Jo! This is such an eye-catching page. Love the rich background and the dancing squares of color. The music on the background is perfect with your quote, too.

What can I say about your layout that the others didn't? Love the story you read in the Post. TFS. Love the rich BG you chose to use with the quote. I had to study each of the dancing squares -- they're beautiful! Very creative, Jo.
