inspiration

Every morning in my little koshlong lake apartment, variations of this pattern would appear, courtesy of the sun dancing through my curtains onto my blue wall. When I opened my eyes in the morning, there it was. It changed as the sun moved and as the curtain moved with the breeze. I can't think of a better way to wake up.

And this is the pattern that caught my eye every time I plunked myself down on the toilet. Very vertebral. Natural pattern of the wood in the panels on my bathroom wall.

More sun painting. Making its way through the screen on my kitchen window, passing onto the counter, and catching the blind pulls as it travels.

all...thanks for your kind comments.

jeane...your comment about missing these kinds of shots from me made me realize that these kinds of shots are what I enjoy taking most. Perhaps I should do more of this. It certainly gives me great joy. Check out my next post!

Kate! These photos make me feel the same way we felt seeing those amazing pieces with pins and thread and photos and wax. I get all itchy and short of breath - why is that? Love them and the one's of Jerzy's shaving implements - especially fine!
hugs!

Kathy,

Wow! That's a high compliment! I so loved your description of feeling itchy and short of breath (it made me giggle) that I shared it with my "Defining Yourself as an Artist" workshop participants and now we use it as a shorthand for work that inspires us.
