Favourite spot

I love how the early morning sun lights up one of my favourite spots to curl up in. I’m not usually an early riser but when I am the camera is always close by.

On these early mornings, I see from my big comfy chair, beautiful sunrises that say “come paint me.”  (A few recent paintings hanging around in the background).

I’m not very self-disciplined and motivation is a fickle thing but the world around me is one of the things that motivates me to get up and paint.   Heaven knows it’s not for financial gain!

For me, the “reward” from painting comes from connecting with others. I guess that’s mainly why I do what I do. It’s great to share and see what others are sharing/working on. So, a big thanks to everyone for all the likes, comments, and follows to date and for sharing your posts. There’s a ton of talent out there.

I’d also love to hear what motivates you! Post a comment below or tag a post, piece of artwork, or photograph with #periwinkleblur (so I can find you in a search) and let me know where your creative spark comes from.

Off to do my painting-a-day for… I think, day number 5.  And it’s back to watercolours after my acrylic adventure on Sunday.

  1. That chair does look comfy and your room is beautiful! Nice and relaxing. All you need now is a hot cup of coffee. 🙂
    Things that motivate me? I saw a lampshade on a show on Netflix recently and I loved the colors so I painted something using those colors. Another one is music. I’m a music NUT! I take a verse, or lyric, from a song and paint it – Ex: “Mexican Radio” by Wall of Voodoo – the lyric “I wish I was in Tijuana eating barbecued iguana” inspired me to paint an iguana and put him on a plate. Another source of inspiration are sayings. I haven’t painted this yet but the phrase “with flying colors” is in the back of my mind. One more – one of my favorite videos and songs by Stone Temple Pilots – “Sour Girl.” I painted several scenes from that video. Here’s a link to one painting and the video is below it. The video is so hauntingly awesome! https://carolsartstudio.wordpress.com/2016/08/12/scott-weiland-stone-temple-pilots-watercolor/
