As I was working on this, it occurred to me that the flowers and motifs I drew resemble the wallpaper my mom put up in my bedroom when I was about 4. There were vertical columns of flowers and plaid and other designs; very 1970's, probably. (I've searched for it via Google images, but can't find it anywhere.) I used to stare at those walls when I couldn't get to sleep at night, seeing patterns within patterns. It was great until I turned 13 or so and decided I was too old for it, ripped it off and painted the walls pale blue. Only now am I appreciating living with pattern again... in small doses, throw pillows and an area rug.
