I, like many of the smiths I know, am a nut for patterns and textures.
This is mainly ever seen in the rocks I collect (hoard).
My entire home and world is filled with an overload of different prints, patterns, paintings, plants and flowers, shelves upon shelves of books and rocks, anything that captures me.
Below is a little peak into my life of this for your enjoyment…
A bit of my world of pattern love~

I love textures, too and I try to bring that out in my painting. I had this idea to paint over pressed dry flowers. It should be an interesting project. I love roses, too. Warmest, SB
