Introducing a New Painting Series:: Ripples!

I'm so excited to introduce this new series to you today! I've been working on these paintings for weeks and have been just waiting to share them with you!

Introducing the Ripples!

{Inspired by Inspiration}

I call these paintings Ripples. Partly because, inn their physical appearance, they resemble ripples in the water, but for another reason as well. These paintings are inspired by, well, inspiration. Inspiration is fascinating to me. Every piece of artwork, craft, design, is created by a person who was inspired by something, which was inspired by something else, which in turn, was inspired by something else. These ripples of inspiration create the world around us. We are all influenced by what we see, hear, taste, touch, feel... and I love seeing how others change their inspiration into creations.

Each ripple painting is inspired by the colors of an image I love -- found by surfing blogs, pinterest, or even taken by me. Below you'll see each painting (I have 6 for you today and more coming soon!) paired with its inspiration image. Click over to the shop listing to see more detailed photos!

Ta-da! So, what do you think guys? 

I hope you love them. 

I love them. 

I've given credit when possible but sometimes (like on pinterest), the original image isn't properly credited, so I'm only able to give credit to where I originally found the image. If you know the original source of any images, please let me know! And please remember to always "pin" from a permalink instead of the general blog url so that people can find the original image! ;)

(Psst... lots of pictures from our stay-cation coming atcha tomorrow!)
