Creative spurt

There has been a bit of a creative spurt over the last few days-maybe it's the impending change of seasons, maybe it's the idea that, as an artist, if I am hoping to give handmade gifts this coming holiday season, I have already painted myself into a tight corner, time wise. Whatever the motivation or inspiration, I have been working on several projects at one time & ideas have been flowing freely.

Asbury Park summer weekend

(As the sun sets...)
Asbury Park was wonderful this past Saturday. No crowds, fall like weather, sea shells, drift wood, seagulls, sea air, sand, clouds mixed with blue sky and some rain here & there. Perfect for thinking about how to infuse all of the above into my work.
(A scientific explanation for the dark color of sand here...)
(A very nice use of color can have the effect of making garbage look eye catching...)
(The light at the end of the tunnel...)
(...is always love...)
Hope your last weekend of summer 2011 was as scenic, colorful, restorative and creative as mine was. & next time you get the chance, stop by Asbury Park, N.J. Off season, you'll find architecture that's  nostalgia filled , mixed with a wonderful sense of the here & now.
