swoon w drooz #7: be my valentine

these rose pieces are a bit different than what i have been painting over the past few year - but actually, they are very reminascant of some of my very early paintings (high school & earlier). i just adore the black background, and pops of super hot pink. i'm saving (coveting!) this room mock - i hope this is how my living room will look very soon! Happy Valenines Day. May it be sweet for you.

hey, ya know what? my paintings "roses 1&2" were inspired by this photo i took on my phone. these amazingly gorgeous  mini roses caught my eye at a local farmers market. i could just paint them all day!

over the years i have designed hundreds of paintings, patterns, items.

my thought process of creating something new often originates in,  places i've travelled, special items i have collected, an experience i've been privileged with, my children and their 
ever-changing interests,  the design challenge to combine classic & trend,or a precious memory i'd like to make last forever.

combined with my great love of decor & home..  and the fact that my art is often turned into products & art for decor, i have to admit my biggest inspiration when creating a new design  is to imagine the room or space my work may inhabit someday. envision it live.
the story it will help tell. the visual journey it may invoke. 
the place it will adorn & the items it will share it with.
the way it might make one swoon.

this year i will "attempt" a weekly "SWOON w drooz"...
a new space, place, or experience inspired by my artwork each week.
