Dreaming of gowns and shadow dancers… every night and day I dream those dreams. At last, I can go to sleep wearing them!

My latest collaboration with BedHead Pajamas has launched today with our first print, Belle of the Ball. Created from my painting filled with ladies twirling in colorful gowns…

Here’s a look at the styles, with a few more prints soon to come. The pajamas are available here and in select stores (Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Zappos, etc). They are also available to shop in person in LA at the Bedhead Pajama store. All of the pajamas are made in the USA.

I can’t wait to see you wearing your own pair, tag your photos on instagram/twitter/facebook with #KatieRodgersForBH

As an artist, I’m constantly thinking about my color palette and how I can reinvent it as my work progresses. I’m most often inspired by color in ways that reflect emotions and moods. A painting’s color palette can completely alter what someone sees and feels when they look at it. HP’s Spectre has inspired me to use my color palette and lines in a much more minimal way. There’s something so incredibly stunning and calm about it’s lines and color palette.

I’m obsessed with finding ways to use metallics to convey a sense of luxurious calm. A moonlit sky conveyed with midnight neutrals combined with the beauty of a twinkling night of sparkling metallic’s and whites to signify it’s stars. This color palette creates a sense of quiet. A calm, beautiful, night’s sky.

I’ve also begun to think carefully about each line and brushstroke… is each and every line necessary to convey the image? To reinvent something I see through minimal line and color. I’ve become obsessed with minimizing my lines down to the bare minimum. It’s fascinating that often a single line can say so much, isn’t it? Striking and to the point… yet still contains that sense of mysterious luxury.
