I have always thought a lot about inspiration and where the inspiration comes from. From talking to other people that is pretty common amoungst all types of artists in all types of genres to think and search for inspiration.
Welcome! In between loads of laundry, lesson plans, grocery shopping, attempting to exercise, chauffeuring to the pool and back and a multitude of other chores I have squeezed out time to spend time in my studio to paint and create. Just as many of my friends and family I search for balance in my life. How does…
With temperatures at -44 today I was inspired to switch from Pelicans to Polar Bears just for fun.
Flying out of 2016 into 2017. It is time to soar!
A few of my favourite things…. Coffee, markers and Pelicans… Nothing could be better on a -30 degree Celsius day then dreaming of warm summer days watching the Pelicans. This is my latest closeup mini drawing of Spike. He is one of my favourites.
Carving out some time today to play with my new markers. For inspiration I went back to my summer pelican photos. In some of the drawings I was working on a continuous line.
I felt like I had to name this fellow.
Fly away is an 18×24 inch watercolour. It is still in progress. I miss finding these Pelicans on my beach walks as I am sure they have flown south already this fall.
This pelican has really captured my heart. He is a big one!
This Pelican in particular caught my eye because of the light and shadow on him.
Still in progress. I am enjoying the individuality of each pelican I draw. They are just so fascinating.
I watched this Patient Pelican for a while the other day waiting for his catch.
What is your inspiration? Lately for me it has to be the pelican. Here are a few pictures that are inspiring my work.
