Daily Graces Return #62

DG Return #62 copy

A book I recently started reading inspired this Daily Graces piece. Entitled La La Lovely (The Art of Finding Beauty in the Everyday) by Trina McNeilly. I have been marking many quotes and I am only a few chapters into the book. I love books that have lots of meaningful sentences and phrases. I will probably be featuring several of these in the upcoming Daily Graces pieces.

I am still struggling to adjust to Colorado. Unfortunately the weather and drought conditions make for many fires and unsettling conditions. Having lost all to fire just months ago makes me feel anxious and in a state of danger more times than not. That is why I am enjoying this new book so much- I need the encouragement and the distraction.

As I await the last delivery of furniture for our Colorado home, I am working on a few Daily Graces. This is actually one ahead number wise. Will post #60 later. Eight months after losing our CA home to fire, we will finally have every room furnished- one of which is my new studio- yahoo! The quote is by Jacques Cousteau.

Daily Graces Return #59- Visionary

DG Return #59 copy 2

I love how an artist can be inspired by so many different things. This piece was inspired by a Lynne Perella spread in the May/June Somerset Studio magazine. I created texture shapes and added elements and backgrounds from ItKuPilli (Mischief Circus); and Teddi Rutschman (Foxeysquirrel). Titled, “Visionary.”
