It's no secret that my favorite artist/designer is Alexander Girard. When I grow up I want to be him. Alas, I own only one textile featuring his work, but it's a pillow with boobies on it, so at least it's a good one. I have tried to style my house in Girard, Jonathan Aldler kind way...kid friendly, happy colors, tongue in cheek graphic pattern with simple lines. So far I am most happy with the dining area, which features my grandparents 1950's Drexel table and chairs. I am soon going to be adding their record player credenza and after moving my desk downstairs, I needed some DIY art for the wall. Looking to Girard for inspiration, I made three pieces using a lot of paint swatches lifted from the Home Depot.
I tried to tell a story with the three patterns, Sun and Rain make Flowers... All I need is that record player and my sunny yellow Release The Sunbird album will have a nice home.
