Texture, Line and Repetition

I love abstract art.  It's what I collect as well as create.  And nothing makes me happier than taking a photo of an everyday object and turning it into an abstract composition.

I have been looking through my digital pictures, pulling out those that interest me.  And, looking them over, they have several common elements.  Repetition, use of line, texture.

Here are a few of the photos I've been pondering:

Cave on Cayman Brac, 2013

Low Tide at First Encounter Beach, 2014

Time to get in the studio.  There are a few good ideas here.

All very cool!!! Cayman Caves looks like an alcohol ink painting! I've been eyeing them as a medium I have not gotten into!
