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)

RIP, Darrell Hill

I am so saddened to learn of the death of Darrell Hill . He was a great plein air painter and a true source of inspiration for me. He had such a unique style, and in spite of his success, was so humble. I never went to Hawaii without stopping in to visit him.  RIP Darrell. You will live on in our memories always.
