Camouflage is probably one of the most universally recognized patterns.
After brunch one weekend we were looking for places to shoot and I spotted this amazing old gas station that was being converted into this awesome, creative shop. I discovered later that the shop was owned by this rad woman from my hometown who designs and creates all sorts of amazing hand-made things (jewelry, accessories, handbags, leather goods, and decor) from found/reclaimed materials!! Very cool stuff! You can check out her website here: outlawwoman.com
I feel obligated to acknowledge the people who wear this pattern not for fashion, but to protect and serve our country in times of peace and war. I honor and respect these men and women who serve in camouflage and I’m so grateful for their commitment to protect our freedoms.
This camouflage painting is from a series in 2014 when I was obsessed with textile patterns. I recently found this cap which perfectly matches the painting so here is my camouflage interpretation.
Wishing you all a wonderful week.
