This is an in-process shot of one of the texture pieces I’ve been working on for my upcoming show.  
I came across a photo of an Appaloosa horse in a recent National Geographic issue, and was drawn to the horse’s fading spot markings.  I’m not sure I completely captured the essence of horse flank here.  My version kind of brings to mind something cellular, or maybe great white giraffe.  
What I really like about this work is how I am reminded of nature’s comfort with repeating shapes and patterns.  From aerial views of lake spotted terrain to close ups of things growing in petri dishes, Nature brings it with the spots.  I am ceaselessly drawn to this pattern, and comforted with the recognition that I may get away with stitching it into my work over and over again.
