my creative space


something made me dash out in the rain on my bike today to get more art supplies.

i was thinking at the start of the day, maybe i'll go supply shopping – but i was good and thought it through and decided no, i'll use what i have and just start working . . .

but the urge kept creeping back in! besides, i had bought 2 similar yellows in the golden acrylics and needed a 'lemony' yellow. i also bought some stretched linen canvases {one on board}.

and, i managed to start some new work :)

moments of crafty desperation need trips on bikes in the rain!!!! I admire you for I would sulk in the corner about it raining and not go outside for nutting lol

It's hard to resist the calling of new supplies - sometimes that dash out in the rain to get them is just the inspiration we need!

Lovely work!

I bet that bike in the rain was very inspiring! I know the feeling, when you need new supplies, you need new supplies and there ain't no stoppin' that.

You can't fight the need for new supplies. Look forward to seeing what becomes of them

That lemon looks good enough to eat. New supplies are like the start of the school year...so much promise for new beginnings.

That's a lovely colour. Makes me think of yummy lemony desserts. That's why it gets a big thumbs up here!

Sometimes the muse demands the need to shop for new supplies. I love the way you presented them in the photo. Love that yellow with the little bit of aqua/turquoise. I hope the final piece features the combo.
