Inspiration can be sparked when you least expect it. For me, it hits hard and fast and I usually have to strike while the iron is hot so to speak.( Or maybe while the brush is wet) It can be something as simple as the sun casting a shadow across a building or a flower opening to bloom. It’s hard to put into words, which I guess is why I paint it instead.
Today’s painting was a total inspiration from a wonderful blog I came across called Stone Gable, American Farmhouse Living. The author of the blog, Yvonne was kind enough to allow me to use her photo as a reference for one of my paintings for the challenge. Her home is beyond lovely and her blog is filled with great DIY tips, decorating ideas and even recipes. A woman after my own heart! Please take a moment and check out her blog, you will totally enjoy it.
