Until then, I'm going to relish the routine as it is now. And in an effort to make up for all the to-dos I failed to accomplish yesterday (rebels unite), I'll leave you with these tremendous patterns by artist Joanne Mattera. Aren't they fabulous?! Joss is an ongoing series of gouache paintings on paper; there are currently 60 paintings in Mattera's series. Read more about the technique used and the meaning behind the series name here. There's something about the grid-like pattern and bold colors that makes me think of madras—a classic plaid print near and dear to my heart. In my eyes, it's synonymous with summer and that's probably because I spent a good chunk of the 90s with my nose in a J.Crew catalog. Hey, we all have our vices.
I hope your day is brimming with color, just like Joanne's work. Oh, and here's to being a rebel some days—however you define it.
