day one hundred sixty-seven

{these posts are going to be a little out of order, but i'm posting the most recent right away so i can explain}

since i've been in northern virginia, i have received most of my inspiration from the outdoors. even though it has been pretty chilly, being outside is normal. that said, i went on a walk today to breathe in fresh air, take pictures and hopefully gain inspiration for the blog & for some other design work i'm doing. it worked, because not only was i refreshed but was able to see beauty all around me.... especially in the form of nature's patterns.

the painting below is of a tree that fell down in a nearby park. i was specifically intrigued by the beautiful purple-grey coloring mixed with the yellow-brown, as well as the multiple textures of lines. trying to emulate God's handiwork is pretty difficult, i might add.

3.5 x 4" watercolor
