|gorgeous papers at flax in san francisco|

i spent lots of time admiring these fabulous papers and got inspired to add flocking powder to a few new paintings to get that incredible look of velvet!

and really enjoyed the like-springtime flowers.
i found some of my favorite things…watermelon juice, homemade granola bars with dried figs and apricots and the perfect macchiato!
then i headed to an artful journey in los gatos!
and i so admired the lovely orange trees,
and even the fog.

the sun was out in carmel, california
and i spent lots of afternoons overlooking the ocean…
