Zen and the Art of Pattern Making

Pumpkin Detail

This is my latest entry in my journal, again I have had a lovely time playing with pattern.  I am surprised about my patience in the repetitive pattern making, but I have realised that I find it very meditative and calming.  I also am very run down at the moment and the chronic fatigue is turning my brain to a pea soup fog, so the gentle repetition is very soothing.

Not to worry as I have finally got my holiday and I have three, wonderful, fantastic and much-anticipated weeks off, where I can just relax and make all kinds of art.  How fabulous is that, I can’t think of the last time I had three weeks just to chill out.  You will be getting a lot of posts from me during this time as I share all the things I will be doing.

I saw this great picture of a pumpkin with this wild twisty stem and just had to draw it and then matched it to this fabulous pattern, I love the autumn colours and the country feel to this picture.

I found them all on Pinterest where I am collecting the best array of pictures and pins.  See me there under Karen Bailey.
