Under the influence of Jackson Pollock

While processing   Wave Patterns  (https://lagill6.wordpress.com/2016/12/16/wave-patterns/) it occurred to me that the central section of the exploding wave shared something of the energy and accidental patterning characteristic of some of Jackson Pollock’s work.  I have tried to capture this in the above image.

Foam patterns


As a small child on my first visit to the seaside I was puzzled by the ‘lather’ at the edge of the sea.  My mother used soap powder, so perhaps God did too!

As an adult I am still fascinated by the foam.  I become totally absorbed  when watching the magical formation of ever-changing patterns as the sea’s energy explodes on the shore and then hurriedly withdraws.
