a guiding principle.


Whenever I’m about to start a big project I’ve discovered that having a “guiding principle” is really helpful.  I always need help narrowing my focus. So if I’m able to decide on a palette or a “feel” I’m generally more relaxed as the work gets more demanding.  I’m about to start designing my collection for the SEABA Strut Fashion Show in early September in Burlington, Vermont  I first need to submit my design ideas for my application.

This painting by Lynne Reed, a Burlington painter has stayed with me since I first saw it.  Lynne is part of a women’s small business support group (Levity Seven) that I am a part of and we recently had a “trunk show” together.  I think this painting and the other photos of mine I found are my design inspiration clothing line.  I love the brush strokes, texture and palette.  These colors have a “mid-century” vibe that I adore.  So, here’s to a guiding principle in whatever part of your life it’s needed.
