It was the usual chaos of barking and howling, doggy pals trying to chew the leash in a frenzy of excitement... the usual chasing of tails and rushing after the tennis ball as the three pups and I left for our Daily Walk today.
I went in search of creative inspiration. They just went crazy. Or maybe crazy with joy.
We'd barely left before the eye candy began...
Right away I found great ideas for new work. Nothing new there. Isn't it odd how the same place holds a million fresh fascinations?
Soon I had to rush back to the studio to get some leaves sketched just right and try an idea for my annual New York show which seems to be creeping up faster than usual this year.
How dandelion fluff inspired me to cut a hole in some black paper and flip it backward with another layer of paper behind it curling sideways and stuck over a different pattern...
I will have to let you know how that all works out in New York in May.
The seedlings are sprouting in my garden like the ideas in my imagination. I am snipping away at a 26 foot long piece of Tyvek house wrap and will show you teensy peeks, though I will save the big picture for after the opening of the show in NYC.
Suffice it to say I found plenty of eye candy on today's jog down the road.
