I find inspiration pretty much everywhere: in street fashion, magazines, on Pinterest and Instagram ... And a lot of times on my daily walk or run.
Today it's raining here in Los Angeles, finally, and I got to take my walk through my neighborhood in the rain, which is such a rare treat for me these days. Long gone are the cold Chicago days, and now that I've been back in my beloved LA almost 6 years, it's hard to come by weather much. But today, even though it's overcast, the air is crisp, the greens are happy and the colors are saturated and vibrant!
These birds of paradise beauties were winking at me as I was walking by, just begging to be painted, with their flirtatious oranges and greens and purples. And after my walk in the rain, I came home and painted their portrait, letting orange and red and pink and purple and green dialogue and merge in serendipitous moments on the paper 🧡💚💜
Wishing you lots of inspiration this beautiful weekend and happy times outdoors!
