The Inspiration of Turquoise and Pink

What can I say....I love the two colors of Turquoise and Pink, especially together. They bring me images of the translucence of the ocean, calming thoughts of innocent beauty, and the feeling that I can just breathe in the moment when I look at them. This little pic is one that caught my eye today and the addition of Alice made it all the more spectacular. I shall be inspired to paint a new piece with my two favorite colors, and then I wonder, what color combinations are your favorite? As an artist, I use my eye to become hyper sensitive when I see these colors hidden throughout my day. Training the eye to see artistically takes practice but the more one does it, the easier it becomes. Beauty surrounds me today, as I sit and know just how blessed I am to be right where I am in this moment, living the artistic life I don't deserve, but am truly thankful for. I hope your day is just as beautiful friend!

Happy April Fool's Day!

In the spirit of fun I just wanted to poke a little of it back at all those pranksters today. Here is my version of "Right...Back...Atcha!" This is one of the polymer clay pins I made which are worn like a broach. Always a conversations starter for sure. Hope you have a blessed, fun day today!
