Friday Forager Faves: Rooms With a View

10 Jun

Yesterday I went out searching for some artsy inspiration in the area around Aberdeen.  I’m sorry to say that, though I visited a couple of galleries in Ocean Shores, I found only one artist’s work that caused me to take a second look.  Unfortunately, most of what was there was pretty touristy, not-great-art-but-there-must-be-a-market-for-it kind of stuff.  So I came home feeling a tiny bit defeated.

To give myself a pick-me-up, I watched an episode of So You Think You Can Dance ( guilty pleasure confession time! ).  While the commercials were playing, I found myself glancing out of the windows of my office/studio and found myself inspired.  So I started sketching– for the first time in a long time.  It turns out I did find some artsy inspiration yesterday, from a surprising combination, the view of Aberdeen out of our windows and my own inner spirit.

So today, we’re celebrating other artists who’ve inspired me to make the most out of my current view!  On with the show!

Vertical Horizontal Break I by Hamish MacEwan

Early Morning Breeze by Camille Engel

Windowpane by Sharon Sprung

Parthenon I by Lisa Ernst

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!  Take the time to enjoy your view, whatever it may be.

      No, Andy, I try to reserve Masterworks for Mondays. Every other day I want to do my best to promote current artists.🙂
