Inspired by Spring
Monday, March 19, 2012
I imagine most artists, designers, and possibly even
musicians are more inspired to create during the turn
of a season. I assume it is obvious that I am feeling
inspired in this fashion now.
Inspiration: Spring is upon us now. The flowers are
sprouting, the leaves are turning neon green, and when
opening the door we hear the laughter of birds outside.
My husband and I have been enjoying late afternoons walking
through a few local parks. We use these opportunities for
scouting out spots to start shooting pictures again. It's
been so refreshing feeling the warm sun on our skin after
those winter months have left our feet like ice cubes!
Just like the turning of summer into fall, the sky seems
brighter, the sounds are crisp, and all of the fresh blossoms
of color in the flowers are saturated with pigments so
strong and rich I just wish I could capture it to
use on my palette.
I'll be playing with color this spring. A little bit of
lavender, pops of lime green, and maybe touches of rose
here and there. My work will remain in the neutral tones,
as warm grays and romantic whites will still play a major
role. However, I do look forward to branching out of my
comfort zone sampling what springs gift of color has to offer.
