John Nack pointed out a video on Recursive Drawing that showed how to make a heart by overlapping a square and two circles. So simple--why did I not think of it before? Well, I have been thinking about it now, messing around a little, and generally having fun. I used a template to draw the lines and then colored them in and scanned it. I could do something a little different directly in photoshop. This exercise will be continued I think!

I was playing around with my blue cross, repeating it on a grid and changing the colors. I discovered this captivating color combination and got so excited about it that I accidentally kicked the power strip on the floor (too near my feet) and turned the power off!

I was thinking the other night that with all the disruption caused by my shop renovations, I had gotten away from my habit of drawing. So I made this little Cross Dot. I didn't think much of it at the time, but I really came to like it the next morning when I started playing with it in photoshop!
There is something very satisfying about repeating on a grid.

Did you feel that SuperMoon last night? I couldn't sleep so I worked on the computer for a while and came up with what I call my "Howl Quilt" from a third dorje array of quarter dots. I started with this:
And then turned shapes and replaced colors. My objective was to establish contrast. I knew that I would be manipulating the colors again once the basic design was set so I didn't stress about the unattractiveness of my first combination:
I repeated in a block of nine and inverted it:
Then I played around with various filters, replaced colors, and applied gradients to alter the colors some more:
I like the results from the blur filter, especially the motion blur example in the center of the array above. Here's one final array of "third generation" repeats.
I think I like this one second best:
