The summer of 2007 was very rainy. To cheer myself up I started painting colourful rose blooms from the garden in acrylics on 12” x 12” canvases. I stopped when I had done 16 and hung them on a wall, trying to find the best combination/harmony. A quick calculation revealed that if I tried every possible combination I would have to change them around 20,922,789,888,000 times. Not possible in a couple of lifetimes. Do you want to try?
