A feel good moment triggers a thought/memory on the practice of design.
Had one of those feel good moments the other day.
Early in the day, I drove by one of our job sites to check on the progress of the painting and snapped this picture of a column capital and ceiling trim.
That evening, in my “spare time”, I was sorting pictures Sally and I had taken during our trips to Paris and came across this shot of columns I took at Vaux le Vicomte. At the time, the reason I took the shot was the angle and the story it tells about decorative molding and trim. As I looked at the picture, I found myself thinking, “Wait a minute!”
Then I put the two pictures side by side and it was AH HA! Yes!!! Each was telling a similar story about scale, composition and balance. Happy Dance!!!
This brings up an interesting point…. Many years ago, my first Mentor sat me down and we had a long conversation about the fact that we are always practicing design. It took me a long, long time to understand what he was talking about. This was one of those moments where our talk came flooding back in my memory – seeing those two pictures side by side. We are always working to master our craft. We do it with each and every client we have and I am quietly grateful for the trust they place in me as I practice my craft, working to improve my “game”.
