Zinnia

 

DSCF0905aI was just sitting here the other day, watching Green Acres and trying really hard to keep working on this when I noticed how much it was starting to take on the qualities of other things in the house.  That Laura Ashley Christmas candle, the tea saucer, the zinnias on the table. And it’s not the first time it’s happened.  I am so intrigued by myself right now.  I must be so influenced by the things I’m looking at, just whatever’s there in front of me, that it sneaks into my design choices and I don’t even know it’s happening.  Wow.  Somebody do a psychological study.

I was admiring the zinnias and thinking about how those colors are kind of the perfect palette, all those pinks and oranges; salmons, geraniums, limes, butter yellows, olives.  How much I love zinnias.
