A Simple Tree

I love that ideas can come from anywhere, any time. What's fascinating is that most times you're completely unaware that it's happening, and it's only in reflecting on your collection of experiences that those sources come to light.

This is a painting on wood that my daughter made when she was little. It is so simple, so clear, so uncomplicated. It inspired one of the designs on my new journals and tea cup cozies that will be a part of the Kata Golda 2012–2013 catalog.

Acknowledging that something from years ago is influencing my work today is a gentle reminder to pay attention in the moment, to savor and participate.
I love that tree.
