FOUND-COLOR & TEXTURE IN PORTLAND OREGON

Wherever I go, I shoot photos of colors, textures, and patterns made by nature and by man. I have a constantly expanding photo catalog, which I admit is loosely organized, that I refer to for design inspiration, color palettes, and sometimes just to make my brain feel good :)

This is a sample of found colors/textures/patterns that I came across in Portland, Oregon this spring. I might use this as a springboard for a surface pattern design using these earthy warm/cool colors and textural feel.
