Friday Inspiration: Summer is...

Cloud Studies – 8" x 8" (20 x 20 cm) – Oil Canvas Panel
Hello ~

Has your week been inspiring or has anything caught your attention this week that you would like to share? I cannot say there has been any specific moment this week when inspiration truly struck, though there have been moments of peace, excitement, and satisfaction. And I guess these moments would count as being moments of inspiration, don’t you think?

Here are a few links:

} This photo reminds me of nostalgic images of summer

} I made this drink yesterday for lunch, yum!

} I am getting inspired by what summer is to other creative souls

And here is a quote that makes me want to go out and investigate life more, "An artist is an explorer. He has to begin by self-discovery and by observation of his own procedure. After that he must not feel under any constraint." Henri Matisse.

Have a wonderful weekend, Liz

Lovely cloud studies - I first did not notice them as I thought they were photos!

The Cloud studies are so perfect. I love them. We have had gray skies with loads of rain. So gray has had to be the inspiration, however I have to remember the flowers are going to be to die for. LA

I love those cloud studies! They represent the best part of summer to me. My biggest inspiration in the last week was getting some new tube paints. Different colors/brands than I'm used to working with, so it will be fun for me to work with them in my next few paintings.

LA, we have had a lot of gray skies as well. Plants and wild flowers/weeds are growing even more for all the rain, which I love :)

Hi Kerri, what fun to have new paint colors and brands! I love comparing brands as well, and to see if it changes how I work :)
