Inspiration Sunday - Images from My Back Yard
Often, I draw inspiration from the photographs I take on my walks around my neighborhood and the places I visit. I like the idea of incorporating elements of my local environment into my artwork.
With camera in hand, I'm more likely to be looking for and noticing some surprising objects, than when I am just "spacing out" walking. I loved coming across these shells in a tree on a beach in Massachusetts. (Here, I'm using "my back yard" very loosely to include New England).
Likewise, I was thrilled to discover these lupine, iris and chives are all color coordinated. I'd like to take credit for planning this, but...uh...nope!
Where does your inspiration come from?
