It’s true. I’ve got a thing for stripes. I notice them everywhere. Pinks houses too, but that’s for another post. Lately I feel the need to add stripes to all of my paintings. I think it has something to do with their orderly nature. Bright strips of color stacked neatly side by side. Painting them is also a neat endeavor and the process of carefully laying out all those stripes clears out the mess in my mind.
