Today was a fabulous day for me because I sat at my drafting board the whole day and worked on artwork. I am doing a commissioned pen and ink of a 100 year old farmhouse. I love doing art. It helps me get back to the simple and basic elements of life which makes the interior design side of my life become more clear. Too often the numbers and business elements of my Interior Design career muddy the waters and keep me from seeing the real purpose of design… bringing my clients to a new level of enjoyment in their interior environments through careful and creative moves. The basics of the design elements of color, texture, shape, and size contribute to the overall harmony and feeling of an interior environment or painting! They go hand in hand.
