Inspiration Results – March 14

Posted by lori . 13 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 is from Sue of Graceful Greyhounds…LOVE. Here’s the girl that came out of that inspiration…

Love Girl 1

Sue thought of her inspirational word for March because March 10 was Mother’s Day in the UK and March is her mother’s birthday month.

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. It really makes you consider the things that make life good, and often those things are small but powerful.

Here’s something that makes me happy…HAND LOTION.

The Naked Bee Hand Lotion

This is my current favorite from The Naked Bee. I like a light lotion that smells good and this one fills the bill.

    I love a good hand lotion too. It’s those little things that make me the most happy!

  • I just love little, curly-headed girls! She’s so cute and sweet . . . perfect image from a Mother’s Day inspiration. I cannot tell you how happy lotion makes me. My favorite is a sheer lotion, nothing greasy or oily, with a light scent. One of the best things in life – Vitaspa!

  • Oh gosh – hand lotion makes me happy, too! I discovered a wonderful one recently which is horribly expensive but worth every penny, because it’s rose scented (love the smell of roses) and it’s made with lanolin which is getting quite unusual these days as people bend over backwards to avoid using potential allergens in their products. I do well with lanolin and it can’t be beaten as a hand softener, in my opinion. The other one I like is L’Occitane’s lavender hand cream. Wonderful stuff!

    You ‘love’ girl is very beautiful. It seems to me that you are getting more and more accomplished with these girlies! This one’s hair is just marvellous – I can almost feel the softness of it – and her face somehow has more depth! And I love the background – some of my favourite colours in there!

  • I love the girl’s hair!

    SHE just looks at us, ’cause we make HER happy…….most of the time.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  • I love hand cream. I never leave home without a small container in my bag and there are containers next to my bed, next to my couch in the lounge room and in the bathrooms. Dishwasher hands. Your lotion looks nice! Mine is coconut.

  • Aww that painting is so precious! So cute! And hand lotion can’t live without it

  • I love those little girls!! And the lotion looks awesome.
