Inspired by…Lovely Lines

From May to August, I taught eight different workshops in eight different states, from big cites to remote locations where I barely got a cell signal. My favorite thing to do at the end of each teaching day is to treat myself to a walk around the town where I’m teaching and I almost always find something to inspire me. I take pictures of anything that attracts me during these walks and then organize them into folders, which I look at later for inspiration. Always attracted to line in everything I see, I put together this small, but strong, collection from my walks.

  1. Love these. Especially the ones that I think are rust? Those especially seem like complete found paintings or collages…. xo


  2. I love this! Several years ago, I was at an art retreat in Bozeman, MT, and we would regularly go for walks; I took over 300 pictures of tar lines on asphalt that were amazing! I’ve been wanting to do something with this series of photos ever since but haven’t quite landed on what I want to do. You’ve have reminded me of how inspiring those photographs are, and I hope to carve out time to create paintings with the photos incorporated. Thank you! Also – LOVE the pictures of rust lines.. beautiful!
