INSPIRATION IS WHERE YOU LOOK FOR IT! Or maybe more appropriately - Where you pray for it... We were headed to the Burnsville Art & Craft Fair here in NC and I prayed, Lord, let me come home with inspiration and motivation! And sure enough - He answered and I came home and began watercoloring and having a grand time of it. (and those of you who know me, also know that I do not consider myself smart enough to water color)
I modified my "Nest Series" with some splattered paint and began to have a lot of fun with some of the same ideas that have been playing around in my head. Met a precious artist at the fair - Michelle Stewart - and really hope to invest in one of her original pieces. Also read some really funny lines: My favorite was this "I laughed so hard that the tears ran down my legs!" Now, those of you who REALLY know me know how often that happens in my life. I count myself really blessed to get to laugh so hard on a regular basis!
Looking forward to returning home and planning out the final details and schedule for art classes to resume this FALL. It has been a while - but I am ready and wanting to begin!
