Nature’s Winter Art

Inspirations are found at times, such as during long walks through a garden, strolls along the beach at sunrise, or sightseeing on a trip to another state, or country! ~~~

A Swim in Winter…

Recently on a sunny, slightly warmer winter’s day, I took a break and got outside~~walking by the ice covered Duck Pond! These times experiencing the wonders of nature are part of the creative process…time to “see“…to think…to imagine…to experience new things…and

Ice designs on the Lily Pond…

 

 

Waterfall ice sculpture…
Design from Motion…

…to witness the art that Nature creates with the materials on hand!

Creativity IDEA!~~Take inspiration from Nature and create something this week from what is currently around you. For example, make a meal with only the ingredients you currently have in your kitchen and pantry! Or, think of things you can do, within your current situation, to create new solutions or possibilities in your work or business…or as a parent with your children.

Can you think of other ways that Nature’s artistic flair might inspire you?   🙂

Nature has a way of capturing our attention in dramatic ways!….Giving us many amazing experiences that encourage our creative inspiration…

Nature’s Art…

Since my last post, we actually just had another snowfall~~this time with 10 1/2″ of the fluffy white stuff! So………I was forced to slow down once again and just embrace it……..no power for a few days………no machines or computers to do studio work……….no television or radio (well, a bit of music from my smartphone!)……….but it was a gift of time to focus and catch up on other things.

So a couple of new inspirations from nature…

  

 

 

 

and what I call “nature’s art“. 

Winter’s Beauty!
