I love sharing that which inspires me – often music and nature.  Here are some recent sources of inspiration for my studio time this month.

First is some new music I’ve been listening to by Missy Higgins – I love her rather soulful sound and lyrics!

I’ve also been working with some new colors – one is close to the echinacea right in my own back yard.

I’m loving the rather pastel-lavendar color of the petals and a deep red in the cones.

Here’s the entire plant – for some reason it has grown HUGE this year!
