Daily Pattern : By the Sea
Francesca and I were talking about vacations today. The closest that I'm going to come to a vacation in the next several months will be a trip to my parents house in Wisconsin. Though it's no tropical paradise (I'd take a cold paradise over a warm one any day), it'll be a nice, relaxing time away from the city.
I made this pattern with a feeling as my inspiration. I tend to savor those moments when I'm alone. I was thinking about those moments when it's late at night and there is no one up except for the moths. I was also thinking about the few times I've been able to get away and just be. I was upstairs in my home studio tonight to relax and ended up making this pattern. It started as a late night doodle, then turned into this. I was just sitting here thinking. I've had a long day filled with all sorts of projects, people, and places to be. I had just an hour and a half to myself before bed-time.
If this is as close as I can get to a lonely sea voyage, I'll take it. At least I'll have this moment to myself.
