I really like Judi's and Carolyn's analogies-might have to switch! Linda

I sometimes compare the P&E's to a recipe. You have the ingredients
(elements) but the way you put them together (and vary amounts of each)
can create a myriad of results--some more tasty than others.

Sometimes I compare the P&E's to English...

it takes lines to create letters that become shapes, to create words,
etc....and then the way they are put together for sentences, phrases,
paragraphs, etc.

> I explain the elements as the basic building blocks of a piece of
artwork and the principles as the way in which the artist puts the
elements together. I often use the analogy of the foundation of a house
and the framework. Linda in NC
