Not always am I aware of where my inspiration comes from. Sometimes sketches, but more often the sights and images I observe during my day and life. Visits to the beach are always filled with shell hunting and perfect (in my opinion) beach stones. Sometimes I pick my head up long enough to take in other sights. I was fortunate enough to notice that some of my work mirrors or imitates some really great works of art, by nature and man.
Spring. We wait and wait all winter in hope that spring will come sooner than later. Well for here in the North East and much of the country, spring is having a difficult time arriving.
Many of us tend to look into our seed and flower catalogs (or on line) with high hopes. I to, wonder what the possibilities will be. New plantings, replacement plants, mulch , a of coarse weeds.
Over the winter I created some interesting pinch pots. I loved them, but what can they be used for? During a recent trip to my local garden center I spied some air plants being displayed in assorted containers, and I thought….of coarse. Perfect!
