It Keeps Coming Back

One of my illustrations for sale in our shop, Bates Mercantile Co., is Boomerang. I sent a large print of this illustration off to Texas a few weeks ago.

This got me thinking of zigzags and chevrons again. It seems to be a recurring theme.  I even found some ancient artwork of mine, so they've obviously been in my idea file for a long time. It's nice to see that the rest of the world has finally caught on to this fantastic pattern.

How cool is this floor?

LOVE the gold.

The simplicity of this design is perfect.

Back to my own chevrons. Here's 'hello notecards' from Bates Mercantile Co.

Then back to Texas again.....and boomerang.  My customer was nice enough to send a picture of her large print all framed and hung in her home. I LOVE that!!! Doesn't it look great??? What fun seeing where my work ends up. Such a hoot.

Today, I'll be customizing my Louis Louis print in new colors-- yellow and gray tones-- for a customer. Nice work for a rainy day. After that, back to my closet which I started cleaning out yesterday. It was frightful and luckily I made some good headway. Still lots to do though, so I'm not minding the rainy day. Gar's down in his basement studio working on some pieces for another order he got this week. Yay! Still doing lots of research on finding affordable shipping options for his work. Not easy when it's concrete, know what I mean?

What are you up to today? Cleaning or do you have sun where you are and you're out digging in the dirt planting flowers or are you skipping any kind of work for a day of play?

Have a great Sunday in your corner of the world and I'll do the same in mine.
