Painting - Acrylic On Masonite
The series continues as I look at this composition as a kind of pattern that is related to the Greek golden mean and Fibonacci series of numbers. I think I will be doing this particular series for some time.
The Fibonacci sequence (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144 . . .) occurs throughout the worlds of nature, art, music, and mathematics!
Portrait of FibonacciEach term in the series is produced by adding together the two previous terms, so that 1 + 1=2, 1 + 2=3, 2 + 3=5, and so on. The sequence takes its name from a famous thirteenth-century European mathematician, Leonard of Pisa (?1170-1250), also called Fibonacci. Fibonacci was one of the first Europeans to use Arabic numbers, whose use he explained in his 1202 Liber abaci.

Fibonacci gave this sequence as an answer to the following mathematical puzzle:
A certain man put a pair of rabbits in a place surrounded on all sides by a wall. How many pairs of rabbits can be produced from that pair in a year if it is supposed that every month each pair begets a new pair which from the second month on becomes productive?
The answer is the sequence 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, . . ., as illustrated below:
