Fresh flowers are always a pleasant addition to any environment but in an architect's office they make a statement about good design and taste. Before leaving an appointment last week I managed to sketch a very quick (15 minutes or so) rendition of the arrangement on the reception desk of a downtown firm on my iPhone. The signature layer was added later. Whether I am finger painting with pixels or pushing watercolors with a brush pen the reward is going into that zone where time is an illusion. An hour can go by in what seems to be a few minutes. I find myself wishing for yet more time to see something familiar in a new way, to be fascinated by color & luminosity and to just continue sketching for a little while longer.
