The YART sale was a great success! I love any opportunity to facetime with other local aritsts – they’re all so inspiring. And I ended up stocking up on some sketches from one of my favorites ::mmm:: I was thinking about her figures last night and got such an itch to doodle, I put down my crocheting (Christmas presents) and grabbed my sketchbook. I really admire anyone who can create from their own imagination, I need a reference to get going when I doodle > usually. Here’s what happens with no reference:
But here’s what happens when I have something to get the wheels turning!:

This is based off a painting by Erin Fitzhugh Gregory I recently discovered on Pinterest. Check her out> they are so beautiful!!
Today I’m hoping to paint from my imagination> or maybe I’ll pick up flowers at the grocery store for inspiration. A (hopefully) fun exercise to free me up – I often get frustrated in feeling like I get all my ideas from other art that I see, and nothing I create is original (lies). But I refuse to stop looking at other people’s art!! They are so creative.
*doodles are always up for purchasing. Email me for inquiries about a piece.
