"Your self image is your pattern! Every thought has an activity visualized. Every activity belongs to a pattern. You identify with your pattern or thought. Your patterns lead your life.” -- J. G. Gallimore - Scientist, ResearcherQuick post for 'Open Topic' and 'Pattern'. Self-potrait entry in my journal, which ended up being quite busy with pattern (and intense color) which is definitely different for me. I've had lots on the go lately, buzzing with many ideas and some new projects simmering around the studio so I guess it was natural that this turned out as it did. I found the intensity a bit much at first and so reworked it but in the end decided to just leave it as is and added a favorite quote.
Anyhow I've loved patterns of all kinds forever and they always find a way into my work, even subtle ones. I rarely step out without camera or sketchbook in hand as some pattern always catches my eye, everything from architecture to the unique ones you can only find in nature - it's all good.
