I love to read blogs that are not quilt related too. You never know where you are going to find inspiration. I came across this blog by Lisa Daria. She is an artists who paints a picture every day! One of the things she says is, "The small, intimate paintings of ordinary, everyday subjects reflect an optimism that outlasts the fleeting light and fragile objects." What a lovely thought!
You can also buy them if you are interested.
One of the first things that drew me in was the beautiful color.
I also like impressionistic art and would love to be able to paint like this!
I think children are very inspiring too. Last night my grandson Griffin had a Spring Concert. Their innocence and unpretentious state of being is so wonderful.
|Brother, Elliot incognito....|
My point is made.....
During intermission we were invited to go see their artwork that hangs in the hallways.
They were spectacular!
Elliot's self portrait. He is in 1st grade, how wonderful is this? Yes his eyes are that blue. If you took the mask off in the previous picture you would see this looks just like him.
Griffin's work....note the clicker on the arm of the couch and the welcome mat at the door. It's amazing how much they really see.
If you look you can find inspiration everywhere. Think how amazing these colors would be in a quilt?
