repetition edition

I keep coming back to this desire for repetition. It's a need to explore many possibilities within the same structure. This is something that first revealed itself to me in 2002 when I started working with prints again. I made similarly themed monotypes. Then, I made blockprints that revealed the process of making the block. For the past two years I've focused, and concentrated on waves and water.

Now, I'd like to be more methodical with the thick acrylic transparent paintings, as a way to create a more interesting dialogue about repetion and change. The question I have, for myself, is how strict I will be about the process, versus how much I will allow small whims and desires to effect each decision throughout the process.
