Being a creative soul (sometimes more often than I should & occasionally to a fault), every once in a while I have to burst out of my bubble and experiment, do something that isn't expected of me. Sometimes these experiments go bad, I have a graveyard of canvas in my studio closet to prove it. A few made it out this summer to an "outdoor room" and are hanging on my fence in my backyard. Then there are times when things go right and I think this is one of those times!
These 2 little birds were inspired by ESP at Paint My Photo. It's a wonderful site where Artists & Photographers share there photos free of copyrights. It's fun and there are lots of really nice people there & beautiful photographs for inspiration when your brain goes dead. You don't need to share a photo to belong either. When I look for inspiration I look to photos, magazines, books, more often than I look at art. It's so easy to be influenced by someone else's art and when I'm in create mode I want it all to be me. I've been doing needlework instead of painting. I have lots of things at a gallery here in town called Spoiled Rotten. I've got to get busy though because I have a show this weekend in El Dorado Hills. If you are in the area stop by and say hi!
Create a Great day!
