Pattern Bliss

I'm taking a painting class that has the students diving into the styles of some of the greatest artists of all time. We're starting with Vincent Van Gogh. I've forever loved his work and have really enjoyed looking super closely at his paintings. The patterns in them are mesmerizing. Today I both looked at his work and reproduced some of the patterns found in them. First with pen and then with a brush and india ink.

I adore patterns. I take great comfort in them. Makes me think of an awesome striped shirt I bought when I was in Salzburg as a teen...all glorious with its white, turquoise, and black pattern. Wish I still had it.
