Floral and Nature
How can an artist depict color in her nature-inspired art and not have florals? As much as I appreciate the beauty of flowers, I am not a natural plantsman or horticulturalist. My florals are inspired by the gardens of others and the natural flowers that pop up in the fields and pastures of the farm. Some are even inspired by imagination.
The rise and set of the sun is a daily occurrence that can yield some of the most incredible inspiration for painting. I have been fortunate to live in areas where we have had incredible views that lent me great material. Now that we are in North Carolina, I hope we won't have anymore inspirational ice, but isn't it amazing where artistic inspiration can be found?
