24″ by 36″ Oil on canvas.

This piece is dear to an ol’ Math teacher’s heart.  On the top row are representations of numbers arranged as dots.  On the second row, rows of dots in squares.  On the third row, dots in cubes. (the 4 cubed object was intense to create!)  Above and along the side are numbers which refer to the dimension represented by the objects they refer to.  Lots of teaching to be done with this one.  What is going on with the number 4 and it’s powers?
