This pattern, viewed from a distance, makes me think of fireworks.

Barberry is one of my favorite subjects, because when it begins to change color in the fall there can be many different colors on the same bush. This one is particularly colorful because the sun is coming through the leaves. The curves, crisp edges and distinct central fold on the leaves give me a lot to work with geometrically.

This pattern has a region of 16 sides and several 12 and 8 sided regions, with transitional regions in between. It is identical in underlying structure to the bankhosta pattern discussed earlier, though much more colorful. (Click on the following thumbnails for larger version.)

[Update] This work made it to the front page of RedBubble. I’ve really enjoyed the comments and attention from RedBubblers. They’ve encouraged me to find a way to print this on fabric. Anyone know a practical way to do that?

[Update] I’ve since printed this on fabric at Spoonflower.com.  It has a smaller color range on fabric, but it’s very pretty.

    Really fantastic! I do similar things with my drawings as a base. I really love that you’ve taken the original subject and gotten to the energetic essence of it. Very nice..
