     A recursive Circular pattern creator that can make flower like graphics. I hope you like this one. Play around with different complementary colours, colour fills and no fills and see what designs you can come up with. Forgot to mention that you can resize the picture box by dragging the lower right corner dot and then double click on the form to get the resized graphics. When selecting colours, one can left or right mouse click on the colour palette to select the desired colour. Also going up a level tends to slow down the graphics, due to the recursive nature of the operation. I thought of adding multi threading to speed this up. When selecting the number of circles, its actually twice the number value in the textbox. I thought of perhaps using GDI anti aliasing for the circles, adding a radial gradient fill and some transparency for the fills, a transparent background (possibly using a saved Png file format) and adding a repeating graphics function to duplicate the design many times over (sort of like for a web page background). Lastly I also thought of adding a saved design feature like used in my gradient sampler program to store and keep track of the designs. If you think of any other features let me know. Too many ideas, but not enough time to implement them (I'm working on a few other things at the moment but stayed up late to finish the basic design of this program). Play around with the program, make your own modifications and perhaps upload your version. It's really good to see that more people have been uploading their code. Take care all. Be happy and stay safe. At this time of the year there are too many crazy drivers on the road (a young mother was recently killed after a driver was texting while driving here in Melbourne - this was really sad and very disappointing).
