GINKGO redux

This painting is based on an image from a book containing designs for patterns and floral motifs from the Nineteenth- and early Twentieth century. I got this book many years ago when I was doing some research to design a tattoo for a friend  (yes, I've done several). I recreated one of the small black and white graphics and gave it a color update. This piece is much more about the over all harmony and balance of the design for me.
