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.
