Decorative Thoughts

Doodles are created when a mind wanders into a state between awareness and daydreaming. I believe that doodles are the language of the mind. We may doodle to help the time go by while in class, meetings, or just bored. Capturing a peek of what are conscience is wanting to say. However, we tend to disregard, forget, and mark doodles as irrelevant. I wanted to acknowledge doodles as the main focus and not just a means of distraction. By drawing doodles on pieces of furniture, I become completely vulnerable to the viewer.
