This composition began as much whimsical tinkering with quilt squares, two-point perspective lines, and crosses. I wrote the randomized algorithms for all three separately and then merged them with mathematical color blending. The result was striking, and I began to see something familiar evolving: a compass rose, or as I prefer, "rose of the winds". The rose of the winds is commonly used on compasses, maps, and nautical charts to display the orientation of the winds (4, 8, 12, 16...) and is often quite decorative.
