Symmetrical design which can be expressed formally or informally is a special treat for many artists. Being a more casual artist, it is always a great challenge for me, but I so admire and appreciate the beauty of this type of design. I still consider my Rogaland work a search for personal style, but am happy to share my journey with you, and wish you happy hours of painting with me as we explore some possibilities.
