inspiring break

The kids were on their spring break last week. The change in routine is alwasy a bit of a jolt but a great time to recharge. We visited museums, thoroughly enjoyed the awesome weather and I sketched every night like I hadn't done in a while.

This is my favorite time of the year to enjoy the outdoors.

Sea creatures are a new inspiration...

Fossils too.

The aquarium was a hit but the sharks were the obvious favorites.

Today I'm back at work, inspired and full of new ideas. I can't wait to get started. I feel like I'm on the cusp of a new wave. I don't what type of work will come of it but I know it's coming.


  1. I love doing things out of the norm (when they are on my terms, of course), it's like a breath of fresh air!

    I love love aquariums!

  2. I've been inspired by animal textures (furs, skins, patterns) and sea life, especially (the colours, shapes and singular forms!), lately, too. They offer great exercise for one's imagination and creativity.

  3. That tree tunnel is amazing. Shame it's in the US not the UK!! ;)
