Each time I come back from traveling, I notice new details creeping into my art. Sometimes it is a new color as was the case of indigo showing up in my art after traveling to Japan. Other times, the new subtleties have to do with patterns, lines, texture or composition. I seem to return home with images embedded in my brain, that somehow materialize in my art. In the past I was much less aware of this process. It just happened. These days, however, I am much more mindful of how I process and work, therefore there is much more awareness of where the lines, colors or textures came from. Here are some photos with details that may covey themselves in my work:
