Some patterns I made over the weekend. Plus SJP “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” Dance-Off!!

I felt like doing some abstract work on Sunday morning. I’m usually very representational but I just got my drawing board set up and did not feel like being bogged down with reference so I took out my colored inks and started playing around with color and shape. The patterns above are what I came up with after layering my paintings digitally. I have so much fun working this way. It feels like a break from what I usually do. Freedom! I wish I could make the patterns into dresses, coats, and pillows…someday perhaps.

* Tangentially but awesomely, Here’s the best dance off ever with Sarah Jessica Parker.


We just finished the mantle off in the bedroom with an antique mirror I found at a cute shop around the block.

My husband and I decided what we’re going to eat on our 1 year wedding anniversary in June. Here’s a picture of it from Mad Baker.

My mother in law just sent me this beautiful view of the world.

    Love your blog and LOVE your designs.
    My favourite is the swallows…but that could be because I am going through a ‘bird’ phase and Im wearing a red tee today….so maybe its a bit subjective….anyway….keep it up. )
