Earlier this month we snuck away for a few days to visit what can only be described as true paradise on earth: Ojai, California. This place. Is. Bananas. The small town nestled between mountains and the ocean exudes charm.

We stayed at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa (thank you, discounted weekday rate!) and one early morning I took a quiet walk around the grounds. Thanks to an overcast sky and some killer stucco architecture, I snapped a few pictures of the local flora on milky white backdrops.

Since we got home I cannot get these images out of my mind. The contrast of these sculptural, natural motifs on a pure, solid ground lends themselves so immediately to use in a pattern. I've been sketching and painting, using these images as reference. Stay tuned for...the Ojai collection?!
