Second carpet inspiration repeat. First photo is my interpretation of the design and the second one is the original one. remember the first repeat design? I'm going to add the carpet that inspired me to show you where I started and how it ended.

Aravrit ערברית



I thought it was very appropriate at this time and I wanted to share the beauty. Israeli designer liron lavi turkenich has crafted 638 characters for the ‘aravrit‘ typeface, a project she describes as ‘utopian in nature‘, particularly since it unites two languages, cultural identities and geographical locations. • Thank you Josh for finding this treasure.

Carpet inspiration

I got inspired from a photo of a beautiful carpet I saw online (second photo) and decided to create a repeat of the shapes and colors I liked so much.

My voice

I'm trying to find my own voice in this medium, water colors are new to me. Sure I painted with water colors before, but I never got to where I wanted to be, just wasn't crazy about the result, until now. I love the transparent quality of the colors when they mix with each other. After watching a few videos on Youtube I tried to paint myself. My graphic esthetics took over and I added pens and colored pencils. I wonder where it will take me and how I'll make it my own. Other than getting the proper paper and brushes, I'm planning to take a class at Otis, my favorite art school in the area. This is my first attempt to find myself in water colors (It's probably not a good idea to post my first attempts after the amazing art of Kiana Mosley, I guess we all have to start somewhere).

Rachel Castle

Amazing work by Rachel Castle, I love her beddings too. More here.

Wrapping paper

I got inspired from my last post while driving over a speed bump and looking at the triangles on top of it. The colors are from my post about nature's inspiration. I merged all three and came up with a series of four very colorful wrapping paper. Enjoy.
