Down time - new artwork to clear the mind

Here's a question for you. What do you do in your down time? What unwinds your mind when you've had information overload (like me), or perhaps just a lot of stress and too much happening?

I love to create. My job is very creative as it is, but most of the time, it's a brain crunching type of creative which isn't always as fun. Learning coding, new programs, and studying on the side too, can be such a brain-drain.

So this weekend, I pulled out the good old blank canvas and paints and got messy.

I have been heavily inspired lately by great furniture design, and really love the mid-century retro craze that has hit in recent years. If you don't know what I mean, think Scandinavian furniture... Think Eames chairs....

Here's an example:

I just love this stuff....

I felt like doing a painting and thought, well why not do something more designery (not a real word but I'm going with it)?
