I was playing around with another tangle when Cassatt happened. In a hurry, I put down the tile I was working on and grabbed another one to flesh out the idea in my head. Lilacs, as viewed from above! I murmured to myself.
In a flash, I was carried back to the front steps of my childhood split level 1970’s era home on Tamarack Road, in Natick, MA. Standing on the top of those narrow concrete steps, I waited for my mom to greet me as I returned from grade school.
I leaned over the wobbly and rust speckled cast iron railing (looking for bumblebees first) to smell one of the tall and considerably overgrown lilac bushes that flanked me on both sides of the stairs. Fragrant and lovely. The door opened with a great big grin and hug. Mom stretched out her hand for my lunchbox. I was home.
Cassatt can be drawn as a geometric pattern or organically. Here are some other ideas for it.
I hope you enjoy Cassatt! Here is the stepout, a video and couple other links.
