Patterns in Nature

I love the leaves of the Imperial Taro in my tiny water garden. I was recently admiring the detail of the pattern, wishing I could replicate it.

Then, while in my studio, I was looking at some fabric I recently monoprinted and painted for my July 12 x 12 x 12 and also the Seasonal Fences - Summer series, and I realized that I can actually make something similar, though not necessarily mirrored like the plant is.

That's unless I take a picture of the pattern and mirror it in photoshop. Hmmm. Lots of lot of possibilities.
