I've been nursing these hydrangea bunches for weeks. The poppy pods are always there and keep getting new friends added. I love them with the dark outside as a backdrop.
I'm not only thinking about branches and twigs for decorations. I'm still toying with different ideas for my new masterpiece I want to hang over my mantle. Here are my inspiration shots:
What I loved about this shot was the minimal lines reflected. All the visual clutter outside was eliminated. This is how I wish I painted - paired down and minimal. As you can see I'm still at the inspiration stage.
