Inspiration - Blog Links


What has inspired you this week? For me, I am inspired by textures and color, how the two sometimes support each other and at other times not. I organized my desk some, pinning up cuttings and grouping other texture rich items.

I am also back to painting. I am working on three medium format still lifes, each painting full of interesting folds and shadows and my favorite items. These will be placed in Artomatic next month, so I will reveal them on opening day, May 29th.

Here are some of the links I have come across this week that have brought a smile to my face. I hope they may do the same for you…

} A Room of One’s Own ~ The old Chinese Woman and the Vase

} Lobster and Swan ~ In love with lilacs

} Artslice ~ Glassmaking at Jamestown

} Geninne’s Art blog ~ Geninne…. In Action!

} D.S. Brennan ~ Hump Day Happiness

This week’s quote:

"Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.” - Oscar Wilde
