Further experimentation with geometric

I have continued with my experimentation with geometric patterns in my art.  It has been interesting and a little fun.  organic-geometric

I  just completed this piece called Organic Geometric.  I attempted to mix my organic style with geometric patterns. The subject is is based on items found in the garden – ferns, flowers and wood.  I decided to use different sized pieces of small branches from my own garden to create a pattern down one side of the artwork.  This I did by dipping the ends of the twigs into the paint and then stamping them onto the canvas. The resulting orange circles show the growth rings inside each of the branches, which I felt made a nice touch.

I found I had to hold my self back to ensure that my organic style of painting did not take over the geometric patterns however I am quite pleased with the end result.

I will definitely continue to include geometric patterns in future work.

It’s all in the Stars – Gemini

Gemini is the Mutable Air sign. The Air element is a Thinking Type, mentally driven, communicative, fast-moving.

Gemini’s ‘Mutable’ quality means versatility, being flexible, able to put things together. It also means that the ‘Dual’ sign is double natured, prone to mutate and change rapidly –  easily swing between bright vivacious and dark withdrawn; or between clear simple logic and a chaos of unfinished ends. You are most happy when, despite your busy life, your ‘dark twin’ is embraced via periods of solitary creative work and by relationships that encourage your emotional side to emerge. You are the ‘thinker’ of the zodiac, the third sign, your key phrase: “I Connect”.

MERCURY: Planet of the Mind—Your Planetary Ruler

Communication and a variety of life experience is the Air you breathe. In ancient Arabic astrology Gemini is said to be “of hot and humid nature” and “your angel holds the key to the creation of metals”.  As a Twin, you are most happy when engaged in stimulating mental activities with a friend close by.
Mercury represents the magic of duality – the complementary pairing of opposites and the flexibility of an open mind. His special message to Gemini is to let your ever curious mind be guided by the light of wisdom.
