Inspiration For A Pretty Peacock

March 20, 2015 Comments Off on Inspiration For A Pretty Peacock


Inspiration is all around us! Not many things can get me to freeze next to my mailbox like getting a new ANTHROPOLOGIE catalog. The images and prints are always stunning but the March 2015 catalog took my breath away! As I flipped through it, I couldn’t help but get lost in the gorgeous colors and combinations of patterns. Lately I have been loving sketching simple pictures and adding lots of pops of color. The catalog inspired me to look closely at different designs that I could somehow recreate in my art. One of the pages had gorgeous tile work that incorporated stunning peacocks. My art is more simplistic than the detailed tiles but I knew I could somehow reinvent those little beauties. So, here is my happy little peacock with gorgeous bright colors! I am so thrilled with how he turned out that I ended up using him for the wallpaper on my MacBook Pro so that every time I open my laptop I see his little face & fun feathers.


Look for inspiration all around you (yes, even in your mailbox) and GO MAKE SOME ART!
