Theory - I use the oscillations within elements to create visual movement subtle enough to reside within a stationary framework. Similar to a lake or a field of long grass, I use many subtle and varied elements to create a tremendous amount of variety within a very limited framework. Here the repetition of the color, and at times color with texture, create the subtle, soft movement that helps the viewer relax into a more natural rhythm.
