In a variation of the Radial Strategy, a circular pattern of cells is added for the first time.
Though it appears simple, creating a template for a circular arrangement of evenly-spaced cells was an unanticipated geometrical challenge in the planning stage.
Once mastered, it begged to be expanded - - but that's a story for next time....

This strategy synthesizes variable scale and symmetry into a new approach that emphasizes dramatic stepping from center to periphery.
Various color criteria are explored within each format.
The theme of expansion is finally given play in the arrangement of cells itself, with microcosmic suggestions of molecular structure and macrocosmic suggestions of "Big Bang" cosmology.
.....And within this effusive pattern, a reminder of the joy of existence.
Radical new possibilities are opening up.
