Inspired by…a color challenge

It’s another winterland morning here in Whistler. December is here and with it mounds of beautiful, white fluffy snow.It brings me a bit of joy knowing that I am meant to be here – I still get excited when the snow starts flying.

I am already playing a bit of catch up here as we head into December. I had a very productive and fun month participating in Creative Everyday. I met some new creatives in the community and also had a chance to explore and create with different mediums. I had been meaning to spend some time in my studio exploring new ideas, but I think I just needed a little extra shove in the right direction. It has resulted in a small arsenal of new ideas for my surface pattern design.A small pat on the back if I may.

Next up ~ Louise Gales monthly color challenge. I managed to create this in the final hours of November,but I am just a day or two late posting. I have spoken often about Louise’s color challenge and encourage you to participate. It has helped stretch my color imagination and encouraged me to play with new motifs.

Here is my work for this month ~ inspired by autumn and a scattering of leaves.

A special thank you also goes out to Louise for including my work in her “Color Stories” feature in the brand new issue of Moyo.I am always thrilled to be included. Thank you!

Issue #2 of Moyo is out and it is jammed packed with color,inspiring interviews, and,of course, lots of pattern. For those who missed it the first time around, Moyo is Japanese for “pattern” and is the first online magazine dedicated to surface pattern design. You can find it here on Issuu. A must see!
