|I know that it would sound a lot more exotic for me to say that I saw it in a “Vision” or some other sexy sounding source. But,..my ideas seem to come from simple sources and ideas. The Caladium Leaf fabric featured above, for instance, came from me taking a little stroll through my neighborhood one day and observing the different species of Caladium that they used in the landscaping. One particular section struck me because of the way the different greens were playing against the POP of red in their leaves.
In my mind, I instantly saw the pattern of LARGE leaves, in a non-directional pattern across different background colourways. It would look fresh and it would go with just about any interior, and any style. It would be classic yet it would have a sense of the contemporary. I would have a coordinating wide stripe in all of the colourways to pair with my new pattern.
When I returned home from my stroll, I set to painting my vision immediately. This is how it happens….sometimes…lol!
