What Inspires you

One of the biggest inspirations for my art is my garden.  I love spending time gardening, painting and just sitting and observing what is happening outside my studio.  I just love the tiny bright red blooms on the plants just outside my door.  They seem so soft and fragile.  I image little fairy’s snuggling among them for an afternoon nap.

I am also inspired by yellow and purple color combinations, lately.  The bright yellow is so cheery next to the light purple of the lavender.

So… What inspires you?

Have a wonderful, creative day, Janell

  1. Your salvia, lavender and coreopsis (?) are beautiful! I LOVE lavender! The beauty of Creation frequently inspires me, for instance, the beautiful sunsets out our back door. But lately I have been inspired by some amazing rocks that we brought home from West Texas and that I have been polishing in our rock polisher. I even used some to make a game for our grandchildren.


  2. I love the idea of sitting in a garden painting! I’ve never tried that, but I should have really because I seem to paint flowers and trees better than anything else. I find painting very relaxing, and so is sitting in the garden – a perfect afternoon recuperation! 🙂
