Take me home…

Well, there are lots and lots of things that move and inspire me, but being in the country is a BIG one. Brought up on a healthy (or unhealthy as some of my peers have opined) dose of John Denver (in the 70s he was ALL about the mountains and rivers, sunshine and eagles) I still love him and listen to him when I am driving through the country. I find I have to get out into the country as often as possible to breathe the good air and stare into the gorgeousness. I always take my sketchbook with me and although I don’t necessarily draw what I see, just being in those beautiful places really does clear my head and I find I am able to think and create new designs. I often take photos, but of course they don’t do the landscape justice, because the space and the smells and sounds are missing. Sometimes I take my acrylic paints and canvases out there (and some good coffee), the ladies and a rug and spend a few hours painting mountains, paddocks and sky. Bliss.
