hope weather where you are is more bright, but over here in western NY, today we really need some "beating the Monday blues" stuff! It is dark, wet and windy, cold too and yes...snow is on the way...
But hey, one can't change the weather, so just find some good stuff to carry you through! :)
Don't get me wrong - I am really not complaining! I actually love EVERY season, I really do...weird? Maybe, but as long as I can remember towards the end of one season I always felt a bit of eagerness for the next one come...thinking of good things it brings...feeling happy that it is coming. And if you are honest, every season DOES have something good in it - right? :)
OK, OK..before you think I am completely crazy, I am going to try and show you what I liked this fall, what caught my eye (through camera) and what made me smile as I was wondering through my backyard this Saturday morning - hope that will beat your Monday blues as well!
Deep, rich colors...
The combination of that chartreuse green and deep gray tree bark is just mesmerizing to me...
Elaine Quehl - her work is amazing, so go look if you didn't see it before! Also visit her BLOG for even more inspiration and great "behind the scenes of an artist". Elaine inspires me very much!
I might not be able to make amazing art like she does, but all these colors, lines, shades...are so brewing in my head now! :)
How about you - do you get inspired by nature? Do you like taking photos?
Hope I gave you a bit of inspiration to beat the Monday blues, or approaching winter ones, or...whatever might be pushing down your creativity - fight it and find something beautiful around you! :)
Have a great Monday and stay tuned for tomorrow's "Each-one-teach-one" tutorial (or fresh-up course) about basics of good rotary cutting!
