Waves and Pagodas

Tonight, while I browsed through my photo collections, I ran across photos of two paintings I did a little over a year ago.

The first I painted for my mother who loves the ocean.

As for the second one, I painted it with the idea of a secret place to go and dream extraordinary dreams.

I like to imagine that I'm in this painting somewhere.

Maybe on the starlit path.

Maybe in the dreaming pagoda itself.

Or maybe resting on the hill, staring at the sky.

Inspiration Blooming

We visited Como Park yesterday. I wanted to see the conservatory and all of the gardens. Many times I like taking inspiration (for my paintings) from the shapes and textures of plants and flowers.

One of the highlights of the day was walking into the Sunken Garden and being enveloped by fragrance. Amazing! It smelled so wonderful that I could have sat in there the entire afternoon.

Mmmmm... I wonder how much it would cost to build my very own conservatory? :)
