It's Friday evening and although I didn't draw or paint today I did spend time working with design, texture, scale, and color - we're remodeling a bathroom and the process can be much like the decision-making process involved in designing a painting. So much to choose from - what to include and what to leave out - what materials to work with - what feeling to I want to create - what palette will I use to create that feeling - how do I interweave different textures and surface qualities to make the space exciting yet not be overwhelming. I love the choices I made today on the major components of the project, but I know from past experience with remodeling and from creating in my studio that I should be prepared to make adjustments as needed and - just like with a painting - wait until the end to add the needed details that will give the room - painting - pizazz. I had a great day! Hope you did too.
