From Summer to Mermaid

Mysterious nature of inspiration with a dose of mindfulness! Been working on a Summer Collection with seaside cottage, sky & water. 

Thought I should include some nautical elements from the beach. Tossed around some seashells onto a layer of blue texture watercolor.

 The right side of this border seem to be a little off balance...
 The idea of adding a mermaid to the border came to me while I was biking. I have to dash back to my studio before my inspiration swims off!

Inspiration shows up in many forms. Came home with this new Cadmium Orange. Art supply is better than toys. We want to play with it, even when there are ten projects going on.

Planting the rich orange Dahlia against the greens & blues was just an experiment. Mother nature does not always cooperate. But when the color scheme comes together... it's a very good thing!

Summer fog makes my mornings quite interesting, from my window. The tittle saids it all. The pink comes straight from the tube. No need to waste time mixing paints.

Paint what you love! 

My teddy bear illustrations are inspire by my love of collecting hand made bears. This remains my favorite license, for a scrapbook company.
