Today is the second day of the Virtual Gallery Walk. Make sure that you "walk" on over to these artists blogs:

In preparing for this Gallery Walk and thinking about where I find inspiration I narrowed it down to four ideas ~ COLOR, NATURE, SHAPE and TECHNIQUE. I find that I have to let the initial idea percolate in my mind for awhile...I allow it to take shape in my mind's eye...I don't sketch it out and when I feel that it has taken shape then I go to work on the project. While working is when I start rearranging, adding, subtracting, looking at, thinking, looking at...it's like a loop!
Colors I choose to work with have a tendency to be brighter and often based on the colors of water, beach, ocean. Here are a few examples of my color choices:
If you are just starting the Virtual Gallery Walk you will want to go and check out the artists from "Day1":

Have a creative day...
