Sunday Inspiration: Images from My Back Yard

 Basketball Hoop with train in the background.

I often find inspiration in the colors and textures of everyday objects in and around my neighborhood. I like how the textures of this broken basketball hoop match those of the train in the background.

I'm drawn to the simple lines, shapes and colors of this photograph I took of a mourning dove sitting on a wire one sunny day in Maine.

There is a lot going on in this picture I took "downeast." I can see some of the textures showing up in my collages: the scraggly grass in the foreground, the brilliant blue of the traps, the browns and greens of Maine in the summer.
