Birds of a feather....

I wanted to share with you all, a little bit of my art inspiration. I love birds, and of course my favorite, is the majestic peacock. I did a painting a while back of a girl with a peacock dress and after seeing so many "peacock" inspired things this month, I decided to add another peacock dress to my collection. Today, I wanted to let you in on what inspires me daily. I never really know what I'm going to paint, but sometimes I will see something unique and want to use the color or concept myself. Here is one example of how I develop my concept or just get an idea. I came across this photo on my facebook feed..... A fabulous inspiration find- A GORGEOUS re- created dresser. This beauty is from one of my favorite facebook friends Jennifer Wyatt. She loves to share her artistic designs and this one took my breathe away.... 

From there, I gather colors and sketch..... With this design, I wanted to stay with more blues and teal. I put my  focus on her hat and hair, rather than the dress. I'm in Kentucky, its derby time, why not focus on hats?? 

I added the text and twinkle to my finished image. 

"Why be ordinary when you can be EXTRAORDINARY"

Also, all purchases this week will get a FREE gift! Set of three no snag pony tail holders! I made big batch for myself and thought I would share them with you!

I am listing all new art this week and I have launched a new website. I am super busy! You will see my new designs, and find coupon codes there!

Inspired by the violet eyes of Elizabeth Taylor and those fabulous turban hats from the 60's, I created this gal and added a French proverb. We are binge watching Mad Men, so don't be surprised if more hats show up in my work this month!
