Inspiration is a strange animal. In my case of course literally as well! ;-)
So I was working on a new wedding line with a winter theme. I imagine soft white and blues, with a bit of mauve ... romantic landscape with snowflakes ... The result is the image above. As you can see only vaguely the mauve tints are recognizable, but the end result is fall and not so romantic really ... I was even contemplating adding it to the surreal gallery as the birds became a bit exotic ... ;-)
Previous efforts to create a new wedding line ended up as vintage style retirement invitations:
Long story short, I finally ended up with a vineyard themed piece, after a comment from a friend that it might be nice to create something with that theme:
As you can see I have a version without wedding rings on Imagekind.
No winter theme in sight so far ... I need to find a way to resize this square painting to also fit all weird other sizes required for an entire wedding line. Not sure yet if that will happen.
The process of creation is interesting and oftentimes "being side-tracked" can be beneficial. I think this is not only the case for art, but in all fields of life. Setting out with a goal, but being open to surprise ...
