Description

What an unimaginative title for this series? Well, at least it says what it is!

If you've ever use a software program, such as Quark XPress, InDesign, Photoshop, etc. they have a feature whereby you can select an object, duplicate it, and then place it in a given location. 

I haven't exactly done this with these designs, but it did come to mind whilst thinking of a title for them. Because I have taken a small element from a previous painting, and repeated it to create an interesting, repetative design.

By rotating or flipping the element, and moving it around, I often find that it can fit nicely together with the copied element, which then creates interesting designs that I would never have come up with without doing this. It doesn't always work, but when it does, it's quite exciting.

The element for this one was taken from Swirl Lake.
