Dry Spell

I've been going through a bit of a dry spell lately and my dry spells are often associated with bumps in other aspects of my life (which is cause and which is effect is something for another time). So, I forced myself to sit and create a few images today, knowing that much of the artistic process is just "showing up." I wound up revisiting some old images and techniques, one result of which is shown here.

I like this technique, multiplying two Rose Range Lite layers, one with angle and one with magnitudue, because of the smoothness and lighting effects it creates. It's also quick to render, which is good when I'm impatient for results, and now, reminds me of blown glass. In this image, I've used the technique on a popcorn formula, which serves essentially as a transform to warp the rose curves into fanciful abstract, yet coherent, shapes.
