Inspiration for today

Oh what joy to come around the corner this morning and see this beautiful scene. I stop and take a deep breath in and my eyes move across this scene,”take it all in” screams my brain. Nature has a wonderful way of teaching me about form and design. The contrasting colours, the sunlight , and when I narrow my eyes, a little, the shadows, so much deeper.This beautiful scene is so inspiring. I just want to set my easel up, take my palette knife out and capture it all in thick globs of paint on the canvas…….

But I must get moving because I need to get home and then out again to buy a desk chair. Oh, now I need inspiration, I just want a desk chair but not a boring one, same old, same old…and preferably not brown. I do some google research for inspiration and a supplier. I have been inspired, yes, I want a ghost chair, it’s there but almost invisible. It will float alongside my desk.

The shape of the curve of the back against the straight line of my table, so nice, I like it’s form. I definitely need a cushion, because the plastic might stick to the back of my legs, but not any cushion, something that inspires my love of travel. This one, the postage stamp one. Every time I sit on it I can believe that I might be posted off, like a letter, on some distant travel to some exotic place……., so inspiring.

    Lovely… the only thing I would say is using larger pictures to demostrate your inspiration a little more…just my thoughts. Love your writing.
