Digital Tile Painting

I'm imagining something like these for one of my exhibits created in Second Life, which stems from my interest in digital tile paintings. I'm thinking BIG, like only we can do in SL.
Mark Lawrence has created an original style of painting shown in the images on his website. http://www.flickr.com/photos/marketseq/2339550800/in/photostream/
I like the work and am inspired by it. He bases his work on verses in the bible. He thinks he has been called by his god to spread the word of the bible through his art. I still like his work despite his beliefs.

December Art Exhibits

Twilight's Peace Gallery is featuring my work for their grand reopening coming soon. Two new series are featured - Budding and Crepe. The sculpture for Budding won an honorable mention at the December UWA 3D Competition as a "Simple Beauty". It is displayed in the gallery as a mini sculpture with some selected pictures. Additional pictures will be shown at PiRats in January with the full-size sculpture.
The Crepe series uses the colors of red and green with a veil of black. Very Christmassy.
Also featured is the Fauve series, which was debuted at PiRats and also featured at the Hopper House in September. It combines organic and geometric shapes. I just realized why I named it Fauve (wild beast) and subsequently created the sculpture to fit the name -- I assure you it was all subconsciously arranged. The geometric or box tends to "cage" the wild torus. The texture I made with pastels....writing crudely the word "Beast".
I am pleased with the way my work looks in the gallery and hope the response is positive.
