Monday inspiration

I really can't think of a better way to start the week than by oogling over plants and other people's sketchbooks: two of my favorite things.  My fingers are itching for Spring and to be outside and to paint outside with my waterbrush (which I have yet to use, by the way).

I've also been transfixed lately by the brilliant designer Lotta Jansdotter.  Her studio, her patterns, her products fill me with dreams of becoming a textile designer... but then I remember... I'm not a textile designer, nor do I really want to be... do I?  Maybe I can just start painting more patterns- they've always inspired me!


Oh!  And these beautiful rock paintings by Louise van Terheijden.



Anyways, I hope you enjoy.  I'll have more paintings to share this week so stay tuned!
