|"Vetruska" Marimekko fabric designed by Aino-Maija Metsola 2012|
Vetruska is such an interesting and edgy dot grid and so large. Each repeat of the design is over 6 feet long, 5 feet wide. I find it to be very inspiring but how can I learn from it yet still keep my own voice?
In my second studio (another bedroom) I have been trying to create a drawing/painting place but it's really hard to get in there. Right now that room is a mess because I used it to sort my old paintings for the exhibit that just went up at the local library.

Fabric or figures?
One of the challenges I often face is that I get too many ideas so easily. Does that happen to you as well?
