Inspired By: Black/White, Blush and Ivory

It's almost December (crazy, right?!) and I'm staying warm by wrapping up in lots of cozy sweaters while I work and ship out orders in my studio. These images give me that same warm, comforting feeling as a big sweater... The subtle blush tones, the romance of black/white images, the texture of feathers and a fun, quirky rug. Goodness, aren't these images dreamy?

What's inspiring you? I'd love to know! There's no doubt that an air of magic and wonder surrounds this special time of year.

Inspired By: Soft White, Warm Greens & Romantic Reds

Anyone else a Pinterest fan?! For me, Pinterest is the perfect place to collect ideas and to organize what inspires me. I use Pinterest much like a visual log or journal.

This month, I'm craving images with beautiful pops of green... I'm thinking all this snow might have something to do with that. I also am loving combinations of blush, bright red and soft white. Aren't these photos dreamy?!

Inspired By: Turner, Constable and Monet

Goodness, these 3: Turner, Constable and Monet...

This past week, I've been spending some time digging through some art books I have lying around my studio. I think it is so important to study work you admire or work that moves you in order to grow as an artist and implement that certain element of magic into your own work. What do I love about these three artists? What captures my attention? How does this work make me feel? Answering questions like these have been key to my creative process.

The more I read, the more I look, the more I learn. After pouring over work by some of my favorite masters, I'm ready to start creating more work that speaks to me... Maybe you'll see a landscape-inspired collection debut on my site in a month or so!

What artists inspire you? How do you stay connected to the artwork you love? In what ways do you fuse your inspirations into your own creative process?
