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?   🙂

Autumn Days in the Studio~

Coffee in a Great Pottery Mug!

Today has been a wonderful warm Autumn day! I sat on the porch with my morning coffee…(in my new “birthday” pottery mug from the art shop at Heartwood~~Abingdon, VA)…

And heard a very loud wild turkey in the woods around our house…He never came into view, but it definitely “sounded” like Fall, reminding me that Thanksgiving is just around the corner too!

After some reading, dreaming, and planning, I came inside to work in the studio~~inspired by my time of contemplation!

Currently in the Studio, I’m finishing a small art quilt…designing the small yellow, fractured fish for the next Sea Images piece…and preparing “Fields at Toledo” for layering, threadpainting, and quilting~~

What are your Autumn inspirations?
