Fluid dynamics

When you try and paint things you sometimes make connections with other objects. This, I think, is a good example.

I was making a cup of coffee this evening and because we were having strawberries and cream I decided to swirl a bit of cream into my decaff coffee. I knew that the pattern would be similar… But this was almost identical. It underlies how patterns in nature can mimic each other. From liquids to planetary atmospheres, even to nebulae and galaxies, swirls and spirals persist.

Beauty and ugliness are all out there. Patterns like fractals can be seen in the landscape. Pattern is wonderful.
