My creative space, on my dest Thurdsday-

Well not true is it? I am posting on Wednesday to keep up with all you creative gals from the different time zones!! What's on the desk? Some new prints. Inspired by the seals we see on our walks by the sea- always a treat to spot a seal- and they are curious too- I was being watched by one once when I was painting on the beach- I saw this BBC documentary a few years ago about a woman who played the violin for a group of seals, each had their own rock/spot where they would go and sit while she played-I tried to google about her but no luck- has anyone else seen this?

I am really happy with these prints, they are definitely going to my shop right after I post this-I was aiming for strong color, and strong shapes, simplicity, but enough contrast to make it visually exciting- hmmm-

The crown is Lucy's but I love the colours and shapes she put together, so I just have it there to inspire me, and yes I bought myself these little moleskins...and yes, they had to be pink...(they are my first, I am becoming a fashion victim)
One more thing, yesterday I went to the Etsy- meet- It was really inspiring,!!, but I will tell you all about it tomorrow, because I know you are all itching to go and see more creative spaces at Kootoyoo!!!
Enjoy!

I love the seals there. I think the wildlife of Vancouver is so amazing. My little sister and her husband went out in their zodiac and were paid a visit by a whale in Vancouver. I think I would have been scared like crazy. They were just wowed by the experience. I love how inspired you are by your surroundings, mostly because I love it there. Such sweet memories.

I love Lucy's crown. Such gorgeous colours.

Very happy and lovely colors.. I would feel very happy working at your desk (mine is much messier... yours almost looks like a painting itself!)
