Inspiration lately


This gorgeous photo was brought to my attention by the one and only Mary McDonald on Facebook.
I tweeted about it and she mentioned me and its creator in a tweet.  The divine Ms. MM tweeted again that she would love to see my ranunculus painting. No pressure...Aaaaah!  After my heart attack, I looked a little closer at this photographer's work.
Check it out HERE her name is Jessica Nichols and its inspiring to say the least.

I managed to finish my painting over the weekend.


I wish the texture showed up better in the photos like they do in this progress shot.


I took this picture of a very pretty sky the other day. My neighbor had just given birth to a daughter minutes before so I am using it a inspiration for a painting that will be a baby gift.



This is such a fun photo. Its coming to a canvas near me soon.


Very pretty.
I think I am on a floral kick lately.
What's inspiring you?

You did a great job of interpreting your inspiration photo. I do wish we could see more of the details. What tool did you use? I have been inspired more lately by skyscapes, so I can't wait to see your painting for that new baby. Keep inspiring us, Kerry.

These colors are just so my cup of tea. I love the palette you paint with. Now I'm going to be on the hunt to recreate some of these arrangements!
