Comfort Zone? What Comfort Zone?

One of the books on my bedside table right now is Dakota Mitchell's Finding Your Visual Voice. Check it out here. I've read through it once and now I'm skipping around. Last night I re-read the chapter on discovering your sources of inspiration and choosing subjects to paint. Mitchell encourages readers/painters to experiment freely with any and all subjects that stir passion or joy. Okay... just the push I needed. I inherited a love for all things "interior" through both nature and nurture. So today a "roomscape" inspired by an ad I'm seeing in lots of current mags for Thibaut Design fabrics.
