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.
