I am often asked where I get ideas and inspiration for my paintings.
I love to visit gardens and farmers markets. I also find inspiration from bouquets and magazines.
Pinterest is a dream source! To see my pins, follow me here.
I was recently inspired from a bouquet I found in a Pottery Barn catalog on this page:
Which led to these two paintings…
These originals are for sale here and will be hanging at US Bank in Issaquah. My banker asked me if I’d like to hang some paintings there to cheer up the sterile feel of the place, and I thought sure, why not? He pointed out that they have an excellent security system, people have access to their money right there and the bank takes no commission for sales!
Sounds good to me! I’m finding that it is worth exploring non-traditional venues to showcase your art because of the high commission fees of galleries.
