And to give it a nice border, more fabric. I like the finished result. Was originally going to say "See you in my dreams"
but that's so cliche so I decided to say "Meet me in my dreams".
Creating designs for Lunar is really different than doing my side art. The purpose always behind the design is to try and capture the buyers' desire. Try to tap into her personal
idea of the theme. That's incredibly hard. And more so for me, as I really don't think of myself as "ordinary" .. I play to a different accordion... so to speak! So I try to find the middle.. but still reach for the unusual. So it's complicated!
Doing my side art is freeing. I don't have to think about the audience. It's just my own creative juices coming out. Not that I try to stay too conscience when I design for Lunar.
Keeping a free spirit in that helps.
It really all boils down to I never know. I do the design, I toss it out into the world, and see
what happens. And I keep on dreaming up new ideas.

Here I am on the beach with my hat that plainly states my most sincere desire. I adore sitting on the beach and revealing in the sound of the surf, the wind, the sun and hopefully no talking. Just being. I did this design this morning totally immersed in the feelings of the beach. And as I looked out, it was snowing. Not just a little bit, but those great big fat flakes that instantly coat everything.. brrrrrrrrr.
It's springtime in the Rockies and we are so used to some of our heaviest snow up here in the mtns this time of year. It's great for our gardens, for the upcoming spring runoff, and our earth in general. So to complain makes us feel a little guilty. But we do. It's just that when we have had lovely warm days of spring, and then the weather slams us back into winter, it's just weary. Not to mention disheartening.
But lucky me, I can go to the beach in my art! Two more designs are on the to do board for Lunar's new lineup. So more beach art for me. A good thing looking at the weather forecast!
