Wow. Has another month really gone by already? It’s Art to Inspiration time again! This month’s inspiration, Echoes of Fragrant Voices by Jo Howe inspires me on so many levels. Her sculptures, created from book pages ( love level one- check! ) are full of beautiful shapes ( two- check! ), soft color ( three- check! ), rhythm ( four- check! ) and gorgeous texture ( that makes five- check! ). Just as with Pakayla Biehn’s work last month, Jo’s work inspired me to create a gallery of varied complementary works, each of which shares characteristics reminiscent of Jo’s work.
