The smell,..the taste…the warmth…helps awaken the senses and inspirations!! And, having the cup “match” the color scheme doesn’t hurt either!  🙂

~Happy Tuesday, From the Studio~

Color Play!

Hi Everyone!~Today I’m playing around with colors for inspiration, as I experiment in the Studio….!

I love just simply using colored pencils to imagine different color combinations…

Dividing into the Cool Colors!~~

Leafy greens

vivid Blues of water & the sky

Hummmm….just imagining….exploring….improvising & thinking up new ideas!  🙂

*Which colors “make your heart sing”?

Beneath the Surface…

Sometimes on gray, Winter days, the idea of Spring feels very faraway…And then, during a walk last week on a warm, sunny day, I stumbled onto this “pop of color“!

Beneath the Surface

A wonderful, unexpected surprise!! So Nature provided a sneak peak of the colorful displays that are being planned beneath the surface!! I’m reminded that in Life, though I may not love the “Winter times“, perhaps they are necessary, in order to have the time for preparation, inspirations, and finally renewal…

So, this week is off to a good start here in the studio….with a burst of encouragement…knowing that tomorrow another ice storm is headed our way…but more confident that Spring is just under the surface and for me to just continue in the same manner~~here in the studio & in my Life!  🙂

I’d love for you to share with us in the Comments below! 

*Does your inspiration vary in the Winter time, or change with the seasons? What have you found that helps you continue with your art, work, or Life’s creative activities during these times?
