These examples from individuals of earlier years showed contemporary activites interpreted by Egyptian drawing rules.
School, cheerleading, tennis and pool were great expressions!
The requirements for the 18"X24" paintings below were these:
(1) Show 3 or more scenes of activity.
(2) Create a BORDER DESIGN based on repeated color or shape patterns which surround the painting. The same border separates the scenes wholly or partially.
(3)Invent or use 30 HIEROGLYPHIC SYMBOLS that relate to the activities. These are small and painted black.
(4)The shapes should be outlined in fine black marker, then painted in watercolors.
Here's an all sports story: basketball, rollerblading and baseball. The border is an alternation of a flower and triple lines. His hieroglyphics included sports items, clothing, flags, trophy and a camera.
A beach scene showed a boat ready to be boarded. Her beach, home scene and ski activities had fish, water fowl and a pitcher of water; food; weather, animals and hot coffee for hieroglyphics. The border borrowed the "zig-zag" from an Egyptian painting with an added red kite shape.
