Today I want to share what moves me to be "creative". It's the simple things that surround me everyday, or catches my eye for a quick moment. Nature is one of my good olde source of inspiration and beauty, while visiting my mom up in Northern Maine a few summers back. I grabbed my camera to explore the gardens, take a walk back on memory lane. Love this old tracker and yes I use to drive this beauty and I spent hours pretending I was the farmer harvesting the fields.
Backyards can be a wonderful place to draw from, here are some trees in my yard.
The beautiful mushrooms I believe are growing on tree barks, just look at all that texture and depths of color. Call me crazy but the thing that thrills me the most in all these photos and in life are "weathered worn-natural distressed-feel and look.
The freak moments that cause me to starch my head and say I wonder how that grew on there, where did that come from....nature is full of inspiration. I encourage you to grab your camera and explore your
backyards, parks and even your towns (most towns have railroad tracks or olde forgotten barns).
I love the little flowers (or weeds) that have attached themselves to the old tree that lives at the edge of my flower garden.
Look at the tree bark all that texture and color. My mind is exploding with possibilities to make art.
What moves you?
What touches your heart?
What takes your breath away?
What speaks to you?
Create from it!
And here it is my creative piece that was inspired by the photos. I even love the stone steps that I took the photo on, do you see the leaf that is placed at the top of the photo totally by accident-laid where it fell-a thing of beauty.
