One of the things I enjoy about blogging is the wonderful friends I make! One such friend is Sharon Mann! She inspires me with her amazing talent and her beautiful artwork. Be sure to check out her blog, if you haven’t done so at: https://mondaytuesdaywednesday.wordpress.com/
Sharon’s pattern play inspired me to start this doodle – a dancing tree:
Sharon recently posted her own pattern “vocabulary” that she used for her beautiful black and white bird. This started me thinking about what patterns I often use in my doodles.
I believe that Nature gave me the idea for my wrap pattern from this Oak tree. Below is a recent photo of it last Spring:
One day we came home from the lake about 10 years ago and this tree was bent over from a terrible wind storm. We were heart broken. We didn’t want to loose it so we applied some tree ointment and wrapped it in special tape from the Nursery. Amazingly, this tree not only survived but is thriving!
What inspires you to create the patterns in your artwork? I’d love to know!
Happy Creating! 🙂
