According to the crazy American date system, Pi Day is this week. And it's a big one this year (3/14/15).

So, this week, create an image that depicts three regular-sized objects and a much smaller one (or a small portion of one of the big objects). For example three whole pies and a slice of pie.

The small object should be a small fraction of the other objects; roughly 1/7th the size is ideal (ie. the '.1415' of pi), but a little bit bigger or smaller is fine too.

You must use the colour: #314159.

Bonus imaginary points for submitting your entry at exactly 9:26:53am on March 14th.

Canvas Size - Max 141 x 141.
Colours - Max 31.
Transparency - No.
Animation - No.
