A Blog about Finding Inspiration

"We have a wonderful world to be inspired by and each new day is like an adventure into the unknown, where things that require a second glance can be captured in time on a canvas for anyone to enjoy forever." (Louise Corke)

New Facebook Fan Page Available as well

Today I worked on creating a FB Fan Page link for shopping FAA prints and reproductions. I wish setting up a Facebook fan page was as easy as setting up a website on Fine Arts America. My poor right brain mentality really struggled with this project.

Second in the Beach Dunes Series Competed

"Candles in the Wind"  
This pastel was fun to paint.  I started out with large  warm washes of  purples and maroons to add contrast and warmth to what I knew would be a VERY GREEN painting.  That and a walk on the beach this morning to study the shape of the yucca plants really helped the painting.
