Designer's Workshop

Finally Finished.  The inspiration  behind this painting............. 
  After being interviewed by Linda Merrill for her magazine, "Surrounding"  I began to think back on my days in the mid 80's as a clothing buyer, taking the shuttle to New York City, going to all the beautiful showrooms and dreaming about being an actual fashion designer. 
That's where the idea for this painting came from.  I am still very much interested in textile design and I'm working on some very interesting designs also.
A few details about some of the items in this painting.  The beautiful yellow Chinoiserie desk I  saw on First Dibs, the botanical dress is just something I created out of my love of pattern and color as well as the high heel pattern on the bench.   I think lilies of the valley are the prettiest little flowers,  I often include them in my paintings  because they remind me of my back yard growing up. Happy Spring!   Catherine
