Art Direction :: Alone Time

Fall is here and I’m still in need of some restorative alone time after my summer travels. Preferably surrounded by the beautiful artwork of Portland based painter Lisa Golightly.

I first learned about Lisa’s work from my friend The Jealous Curator. I love her figurative pieces inspired by photography and her moody abstract paintings like Floodline No. 2, which set the tone for this month’s mood board.

I’m an introvert and I recharge by being alone. I don’t need a silent mountain retreat, although that does sound kind of great right now. A solo outing in the city, maybe art gallery hopping, will do.

How do you make space for much needed quiet time to recharge and create something new?
