ten minutes

It's the time it took me to slap an open security envelope and one of last week's doodles on the scanner and make this image.

- I knew this wasn't something that I'd normally do (make a collage type image) but I decided to try anyway.
- I felt out of my comfort zone.
- It's hard to pick just one color.
- Why did I have to pick just one color?
- I doodle a lot of leaf inspired shapes. A lot.
- I want to make a simplified version of this.
- It's not the best thing ever but not everything needs to be perfect.
- I like that you can tell it's hand drawn.
- This has given me an idea for a paper project.
- I didn't really think much. I just went with whatever came to mind—quickly.

Conclusion: I should do this more often.

The true reason why I wanted to write this post: to bump my birthday post further down the page. Enough with that already. However, I do appreciate all your lovely wishes. Thank you so much. I had a great day and weekend celebrating with my family.


  1. you definitely gravitate toward the foliar...is that a word? and it's lovely. this has such a nice proportion and playfulness to it.

  2. Thanks. Yes, it is a word. One that I wouldn't have thought of using but it definitely fits.

  3. This is fun! I love it! It has such a quirkiness to it.

  4. What a nice effect. Yes, we all need to get out of our comfort zone more often.

  5. I agree with the others and think it would be really nice as fabric.
    i have gravitated towards teals in the last 3.5 years.
