It’s funny how creativity goes— some days it just packs up and leaves, and other times it constantly tugging at your sleeve, begging and pleading and coming up with “ooh oh, I have another idea!!!” Lately inspiration have swung over to the more fervent side of things, and it’s good but it’s mind racing! I’ve got so many ideas. I’ve had a few revelations about what Audrey Eclectic should be,and new paths to take. One thing is for sure, I’m really excited about it, and I hope that you all like it too.
My latest painting is this one– “Forever and Ever.” I love florals on dark backgrounds, and this is a bit of a companion to “Lars”, which I painted recently with a dark floral background. I also love how red and salmon look together. Sort of an ‘ode to Joan’s apartment‘, if you’re a Mad Men watcher. I think her home is my favorite, love all that brave color!
In other nice news, fellow Oklahoma artist and talented illustrator Holly Abston has created a new blog called “Squeeze the Lemons” which is about being creative and frugal and creating a beautiful life with what you’ve got. She interviewed me today about my art and own struggle to makes lemonade from lemons, as they say 🙂 please stop by and see what she’s got going on! It’s lots of fun.
Well…it’s hot. Hot hot hot. That’s about all I can say 🙂 So we are all indoors, enjoying some nice manufactured cool air, and trying not to trip over sleeping pups!
Hope you are well!~ And thinking of my Florida readers! Hope you are safe, feel free to send some of that rain this way!~
