Happy Monday

What gorgeous weather we’re getting. I’m feeling so lucky that we’re in Brooklyn this summer. The streets are tree-lined and quiet and I’m only a week away from having a baby so am beyond thrilled not to have one of those scorching hot summers with burning pavement and honking horns below my studio window.

Here are a few more patterns I made from some playful doodling I did alongside Henry the other day. I just picked sections of each doodle and made elements to be repeated. I like the effects I got just using his kid’s watercolor set and oil pastels on manila paper. Sometimes the cheapest materials yield interesting results.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the week. So many people we know are going out of town this week. I guess everyone’s realizing that summer is slipping away and relishing a last little bit of relaxation and fun before the fall and winter slog begins.

    thanks so much Linsey. You and Ivy could collaborate. You could take her paintings and drawings and do the same. I should try it with Henry’s too!

    You guys are back right? Would love to see you. School starts the 4th and Viv is due that day but if you are around labor day-the 3rd maybe we can meet at the playground. XOX.
