Inspiration comes in many forms. I am inspired by Antique Photos, Antique Baby Shoes, Kind Words from my sweet customers and lately I am so INSPIRED by the Love from my friend Mystele.
The painting above was painted by me but heavily influenced by Mystele's willingness to share. I approached my easel with a light heart and used some supplies and paint colors that have been sitting on my back shelf for years. The "Canvas" is actually a wood board that has been sitting in my studio now for about 4 years waiting to come to life....being avoided because I was afraid to paint the wrong thing....or because I felt that what I painted wouldn't be perfect. It felt great to break away from the norm and wake up out of a haze. It felt great to Love this painting when I was done despite my feelings of it not being perfect. It felt great to use a color palette that was out of the ordinary for me. The painting is Titled "Growth".
Mystele and I are dreaming partners and her philosophy when creating is to approach it as you are going off to Play. I just love the new twist on the way I approach my art studio or shall I say Playground now!
Thanks Mystele!! Love Ya Girl! xoxoxo
