Passion for Pattern Blog Hop!

Today is the day! If you have a passion for color, pattern, beauty....today is the day for a fun and visually enjoyable blog hop...follow the links and enjoy! You are coming from the lovely blog of Sarah Paris.

Since I have my final three shows of the year coming up quite quickly I've had to put down my mouse and my waacom tablet pen and take up the paint brush! So I have been mostly painting lately, not as much designing. One of my goals for this year is to play with how my paintings ideas fit into my pattern designing,  I thought I would create some patterns based on a painting that I have created for the Fall Festival coming up this next weekend. The painting is called "After Our Walk" because only after our walk will my dog Tully settle in for the day, usually underneath the table in his spot, and I can get to work. Below are the beginning ideas for a pattern collection based on the painting.
"After Our Walk"
The blog hop started here, at Claire Smillie's blog, if you'd like to go back to the beginning at not miss out on a single post!

For your next stop, head over to Jacqueline Auvigne. She is a talented and interesting Canadian Artist, Illustrator, Doodler, Surface Pattern Designer, and general Stuff – Maker.

The Painting is just Gorgeous Carrie. And the patterns derived from it are lovely too.

Oh Carrie...these are just gorgeous. Love how you have shown your painting and then the designs that you have produced from them. They are all gorgeous but my absolute favourite has to be one in the bottom right. So lovely...you are a very talented artist. Good luck with your shows
