Finding New Inspiration

Just before the sun is down...
Man in a boat

Every day since I have moved, I walk my dog along the small beach near my house. It's a short walk and he loves the smells plus he always tries to catch a seagull, it's pretty funny to watch. Yesterday around 5pm we were at the beach and I was blown away by the colors in the sky. I have painted sunsets in the past but ever since I have moved I feel like I have a new awareness of the inspiration that surrounds me on a daily basis. I am about to start a new watercolor and I am thinking of using one of these photos because of the colors in the sky and the way they reflect on the water. Nature is so amazing to me.


  1. These are just gorgeous photos, - I am sure that they will make into some wonderful paintings - look forward to the process.

  2. What a beautiful place to live! Nature is truly awesome. Looking forward to the paintings!
