Chalky pastels are making me happy this week.
I don't know if it is the endless daze of gray here in the mountains or the hint that spring is right around the corner, but I am craving some warm, dry and dusty.
These colours remind me of long, warm, summer nights. They remind me of the desert. They remind me that summer is in my future. Most importantly though they satisfy the need for a little colour in my life.

Finding my own inspiration from above - a little visit to the desert on my desk today. Paper cut pieces randomly scattered and then played with like pieces of a puzzle until I find a composition I am happy with.
More pieces of my painted papers - colours, textures and shapes I was drawn to. Nothing solid, or glued down yet, but the ideas are there.
Eventually it will all come together. I love the randomness of it all and the life it has before being glued down.
I often prefer it this way!
I have to say I am quite happy being back here blogging. I really enjoy sharing the creative process, both mine and others.You just never know how and where inspiration will strike.

Enjoy the week!
