Mondrian's Toothpicks
Spent the last week executing an idea I had earlier this month: a stained glass piece based on the Toothpick Sequence, a simple mathematical ruleset about line-drawing that generates complicated results. I ended up going with four color scheme for the collection of rectangles and squares, and so: Mondrian's Toothpicks.

The idea of a stained glass window filled by a L-system is just 🤌. I hope you get to work on a church someday!

Thanks cortex, great stuff. I have a blank wall that needs paint, now I know what's going on there.
