Inspiration Results – April 18

Posted by lori . 15 Comments


Every Monday, I’m posting a painting “inspiration.” Every Thursday, I’m posting how I interpreted the inspiration. I decided to do this to keep myself painting, to strengthen how I go from an idea to a painting, and to give myself permission to play and try new things. For the next several weeks, I’m taking my inspiration from the great ideas you sent me.

This week’s inspiration comes from Kat of Dog Gone Right…WATER. Here’s the girl that came out of that inspiration…

How to be HAPPY!


Every Thursday, Jay of The Depp Effect, posts something that makes her happy, and I’m playing along. She encourages us to look around and notice the things that make us happy. I enjoy this challenge because it makes me consider the things that make me happy, but are easily overlooked. It’s a wonderful exercise in attention and gratitude. Please grab the badge and join in.

Here’s something that makes me happy…My favorite brush, a #12 FLAT BRUSH.

#12 Flat Brush

Any type of work is easier and more enjoyable when you have the proper tools. The #12 flat brush is my favorite paint brush. I love it for base coating, for adding shadows and highlights and for the precise line I can get with the edge of the brush. This brush feels good in my hand.
