Things that are inspiring me...



some things that are inspiring me:
1. summer
2. 60's prints (bold graphics)
3. Chola bronzes (these sculptures always take my breath away
 with their perfect synthesis of grace and energy)
4. love
5. Flying Lessons (with Kelly Rae Roberts)
6. girlie dresses for Tara (so much cuteness!)
7. lush Indian colors (vermilion and gold, turmeric yellow,
 saffron, peacock blue...)
8. O magazine (chock full of inspiration-every month!)
9. Zen Buddhism (simplicity, grace, mindfulness)
10. African Mudcloth (the rich colors and graphics
 are sensual, bold, magical)

what's inspiring you these days?

Miro, South African decor magazines, World Cup soccer fanfair, A Georgia O'Keefe movie, carving in the sun, Glue .... don't laugh .... I've been experimenting with glue to see just how strong it is .... and it is pretty strong!
Enjoying reading about your inspirations. The Chola Bronze on the cover of your book inspires me too. It really is fanatstic. A figure that has always intrigued me.

i love your list! so much on it inspires me as well.

last night we had a pretty wild thunderstorm and my daughter crawled into bed with us ... snuggling with her, drinking in her essence and the power of my need to comfort and protect her ... that energy is inspiring me today. inspiring me to be fearless in all areas of my life. and to love every precious moment with her.

(hmmm ... i am perhaps a little hormonal right now?)

I am loving Kelly's class, too:) And I just got a brand new book by Shona Cole...can't wait to read it. All the amazing women bloggers I'm finding are very inspiring...art collages are getting me excited to create as well.

Love your list!!

I'm definitely inspired by other pieces of beautiful paintings, being near the ocean, or watching the sunrise and sunset creates a certain warm feeling in my belly, swimming and being close to nature too.I'm also inspired by women artists and writers who have lots of courage to follow their dreams.

Hmm, what's inspiring me?

My daughter's sheer joy to be alive

Dying my hair a lighter blonde after 10 years of darker strawberry blond and brown shades.

The heavy sweet smell of the air on a hot humid day.

The sound of birdsong and insects buzzing during the day, the nightsong of frogs.

Old movies from the 30's-50's, and other movies that are either uplifting or quirky

Vintage Victoria magazine

Bright summer print tank tops

Tori Spelling (odd, but I can't help it. I love her reality show)

Kelly Rae's ecourse & all the amazing bloggers I've discovered thru it.
