Pattern Continued

Spring finally is here. With lots of false starts and more snow than daffodils, we now can begin to acknowledge its existence.

A little more on pattern. I'll try to include some examples of pattern in some of my paintings. I hope you enjoy the art work and the delight of finding pattern everywhere.

The pattern of sagebrush, clouds and ridges carries us over the hillside. Diagonal movement is more active. A breeze surely stirs the restless brush, the turn of the hillside. There must be living creatures here.

The cat’s face is juxtaposed onto Degas’ dancer’s body. Reflections with a Fishing Net shows wave patterns, lattice patterns, reflections, symmetry, lines.

The helix climbs the cedar, a mosaic of pattern in the goblins coats, nests, meanders, polyhedra-shapes

and spirals in the shell.

Pattern evolves as knowledge and creativity develop. Enjoy its involvement in art.

 

Pattern comes to us from pater, Latin for father, and shares this origin with patron, paternal, and patriarchal. The Latin patronus means defender, protector, lord, or master. What pattern shares with each of these words is the notion of a role model. A pattern presents an idea that is worthy of imitation. Indeed imitation is so essential to pattern that it can be found in every example.’
