This week I took up my watercolours for the first time in years. By my back door I have pot and pots of polyanthus It is time they were planted out in the garden as they are starting to look scrappy. I find that their colours inspire me in winter where there is just green and more green. I am quite pleased with the leaves, but the actual flowers themselves I am not so impressed. However, I really enjoyed painting them as they had given me much pleasure over the winter. Flowers are so inspiring.
I started to think about what inspires me the most and trawled through my files and came up with these images. It is interesting to look at your old work. Well nearly old they have been executed over the last year or so.
Things that give me inspiration
butter wouldn't melt in their mouth boys and cute little girls
naughty children and harassed teachers
in your face teenage girls and sulky teenage boys
beautiful young girls and elegant ladies
tired husbands and exhausted wives
eccentric old ladies and grumpy old men
fat cats and naughty cats
I am inspired by all of these as we are all so different from each other:
Each of us is an original
Galatians 5:26 Msg
We must thank God at all times for you,
friends, you whom the Lord loves.
2Th 2:13 GNB
Have a wonderful week and happy creating.
