ikat inspiration

I rarely have any idea of where the inspiration for some of my art comes from- it's usually just a product of the combination of colors in front of me. On Monday I was working on a few pieces and in the middle of one painting, started the painting below because I thought the blue I mixed deserved its own canvas. When I finished up, the painting felt so familiar and a few minutes later I realized why. I lived in this color all summer...and specifically, this pattern. From caftan to canvas, blue ikat sums up my summer. Wonder what fall will bring with all those loafers from yesterday...
