Day 2: Inspire Your Life In 12 Days

this prompt is about inspiration and where you were when it hit. a couple of months ago i was working on a painting called "desir" i had gotten to the part where her hair is and froze in my tracks. i wanted her hair to be amazing, a focal point and i had no idea how i was going to do this. i started in with my brush, painting circles in her hair and did the whole first layer that way. for some reason i noticed a rubber textured tool sitting to the side that i had been playing with off and on in my sketchbook and decided to just be free and move it around on the circles i had just made... OMG!!! it made the coolest patterns!!! i kept going... inspiration had struck in playing and allowing and i ended up adding several more layers using this tool. i guess inspiration can sometimes be found in letting go, trusting and playing!
one of my happy places is in my home right now and especially my "artist's nook" as i call it. its where i paint my larger paintings and explore new creative ideas. i used to have a much larger space for creating but recently moved into a smaller place so i jokingly call this tiny space my artist nook. It truly doesn't matter how much space i have, only that i have enough to set up my easel, paints and paintbrushes.


  1. Looks like the perfect creating space to me... u are blessed!!!!!!! Love the painting, and u are right that tool is amazing! wow... love all your supplies! xo
