Painted just after an important solo show at Bellwether gallery, I was tired and nervous what to do next. I wanted nothing but to get stoned and let my mind drift

15 years before I spent the night in a blue and white chintz room, It was the first time I was in an all over pattered room. The next day I was interviewing for collage and was really nervous about the meeting. My friends grandmother was kind enough to invite me to stay with her. Although she was welcoming I felt very uncomfortable staying in such a nice room. Staring off into the all over pattern calmed me. As let my mind drift the room soon turned into a garden of delights.
