i take inspiration from the mundane moments in life that i try so hard to literally breathe presence into. when i can, i remember to pause, and feel my breath, and it actually transforms the way i see and take in the space around me. i can sort of step out of my self for a moment, and just take in the shapes, colors, textures of my environment. here, a simple lamp shade that i found at a consignment shop launched a whole study of triangles and line-work.  also, those little striped half circles made another appearance in this days work. and the tiny ovals. tiny ovals in bulk are fun.
