Click here for my series of repetitive oil paintings

Occasionally, I will come across a small element that I like, and I will wonder what I can do with it. It wont make a painting on it's own, so it needs to be developed. Repeating the element can solve the problem, but it's not until you see how the repeated elements fit together that you start to find those interesting designs that you would otherwise never come up with. 

It doesn't always work, but when it does it is quite rewarding.

This was an experiment to see how the brush would flow over an ultra smooth surface. It was okay - not quite as smooth as I had expected - but what I didn't account for was that, after the earlier layers of paint had dried, they would cause their own bumps and ridges, which steer the brush off course. Nevertheless, it was enjoyable painting on a different surface.
