A Fresh View
I've made this texture on my pots for a while and then realized it probably subconsciously came from all the tall grasses in the meadows out here. I've been experimenting with various textures on the creamer and sugar sets today.
Times that I need a breath of fresh air, I often walk up the nearby hillside scattered with daisies and the powerful scents of honeysuckle. It's such a refreshing perspective from up there above the rolling hills. It's so nice to look out in 360 degrees and not see gas stations, grocery stores, cars and hot pavement. The mountain peak in the background is Roan Mountain to the east. My walk ended with an interruption of our usual summertime rumbling thunder and lightning, which only amounted to a tease for rain.
