Ideas and Thoughts for Inspiring a New body of work/series of paintings!

Green River - SOLD

I'm always looking for ideas and thoughts that will inspire me to develop a new body of work/series of paintings. I've been painting to create more beautiful things as I develop my technical skills, but I'm ready for something much more wanting the work to accomplish more for others in some way.

The following thoughts in this video, are part of the inspiration for a new series of paintings I'm contemplating... I'm not completely clear on how it will manifest, but couldn't wait to share this great inspirational talk.

T'was the Night Before Xmas... Christmas Card Opt #2

I finally completed the second study for a Christmas card.

The photo of my Granddaughter was actually taken a couple of Christmas eves ago - so I thought the title fitting. She's sitting in her Great Grandma's chair that now resides at her Auntie's house.

It is a little brighter than I originally thought I would do, but it will be darker by default after it is printed. It is getting a little late to be working on a Christmas card image, but at least it will be ready for next year if I don't make it happen this year. ;o)
