Morning Walk Inspiration

IMG_1987For the past week or so we have had gorgeous weather here in Middle Tennessee. Low humidity and cooler temps have made it feel like fall. I decided to take a little walk down our road instead of my usual workout routine in the house. My fast walk soon turned into stopping and gathering the interesting little presents that the nature around me had left in my path.

IMG_1990Poke berries are such a beautiful shade of dark purple, contrasted against the bright magenta stems and green leaves. The immature berries are a cool chartreuse. IMG_1991When crushed, the berries yield the most deep, magenta pigment. I couldn’t resist mashing them and adding a few drops of water to extend it to make some paint.IMG_1993I had a jar full of black walnut hulls that I had been soaking since last fall in my pantry so I combined the two to make this pattern in my journal. It will become the background for some future creation, either collage or a photo background.

IMG_1989If you are feeling uninspired, just find a nice park or country road, or even your own backyard and see what treasures you can find to spark that flow of ideas. See where it takes you!

Van Gogh Would Be Envious

IMG_1716Driving down our road is beautiful any time of the year. It is a source of many photos and much inspiration. This spring my husband and I were driving by our neighbor’s property and noticed that they had planted a whole field of something. Hmmmm….is it soybeans…what is it. After the plants got about a foot tall, we realized that they were sunflowers. A whole five acres or so of sunflowers! Anticipation of their blooming grew each time we drove by. Finally the day arrived! It was disappointing to find that they all had their pretty heads facing away from the road. In order to see them from the front, you have to get out of your car and walk into the field. Which is exactly what I did.

IMG_1784This is going to be a wildlife feast when they all ripen!

IMG_1785Such a beautiful sight! I’m almost afraid to share it with the world. We wouldn’t want a traffic jam on our little road. :-)

IMG_1786Okay…I’ll share it with you special people.

IMG_1798Just in case you don’t live nearby. Here is a little view of my world.

Country Roads

 As I drive down the road from my house…

  I start to see the old familiar sights…

  With new eyes.
