It’s not squares and grids plaid, it’s blobs and clouds plaid. I should mention, I call this “plaid painting” because that’s what Mrs. Bellafonte told me it was called back in that day, but you can call it whatever you want. Check out Flamingo Scraps to see a more traditional sort of plaid –nifty stuff.

Resist the math!
