A few days ago, my husband was making some vegetables to put on the grill. I walked into the kitchen when he was well into dicing and I spotted the most beautiful *flowers* on the counter!
Now, I know they’re not really flowers, but I grabbed them to take a picture anyway, because as artists, we can get inspiration from things we see.
Nature is an amazing source for getting art ideas. We have ten acres and right now five acres have lots of wildflowers on them.
This week I created this painting and used recycled tumbled glass to put on the petals.
We live near the Mark Twain National Forest and by the Ozark Mountains. We hike and I love mountains. This week I was making a gift for a friend who also hikes.
I had zero idea on how to paint mountains so I did an online search. Two different mountains videos on https://stepbysteppainting.net (I put mountains in her search box) gave me some ideas and I painted this:
I added beads and a pendant for the river and a couple of flowers for fun.
Nature is a gift on so many levels. I especially appreciate how nature inspires art.
Hope you have a wonderful day!
