Illustration Friday: Three paisley bowls


I completely forgot that I played around with sketching this weekend while I was taking care of Stella, Kj and JB's sweet dog. (More on her Wednesday!)
I printed out different paisley patterns and willy-nilly cut them into bowl shapes. I found this large flower in a pile of stuff I bought at the artsy store there, and then I just drew in little zinnia type flowers.
It really is simple but I enjoyed the meditative flow. And Stella likes it ;)
Have a groovy week everyone!

  1. Sometimes you just have to do things that let you zone out.
    And if Stella likes it, what more does one need? :D

    XXOO!!

  12. Lo, these are so gorgeous....
    I adore paisley.... it reminds me of the 60's - an era I missed, but would have felt right at home in.

    I love how you have used so many different elements....

    And now, you will have to think about a designer "By LoLo" water bowl for a certain someone! Hey, it could catch on!

    Love, Love,

  16. I love paisley...Graham was born in Paisley, Scotland where paisley was also born!

    I wish I could do bowls like this when I sit for dogs, but nothing even remotely like it comes to mind, heh!

    Very nice meditative art, I love it. The flowers, especially the zinnia, my fave, are so pretty!

  18. You won believe it but yesterday I bought something here with a paisley patern for you........
    Coincidence???? I don think so.
    I just came back from a day to Taipei. It was not a full flight so it was quite relaxed .
    Now I am listening to John Mayer feeling happy and content.
    Love your paisley collage wish I could do this magic....
