Inspiration in Paradise
I never thought I would end up in Hawaii, but I did. I decided since I was already going to Seattle for Elena’s graduation from Graduate School and Hawaii is only a fairly long hop and a skip away and after all that hard work she really did deserve a fitting present . . . all to say, we rather spontaneously ended up in Hawaii. Added to our great fortune to be able to go there was the fact that we have lovely friends who live there and we were able to bask in their hospitality for our short four day visit.And Paradise provided tons of color inspiration. The light there is amazing as is the sky, the ocean, the flowers, the beaches.
I always take my color inspiration from nature so this was just a feast for my New England eyes!
We also took some photos of hand-painted silk bobbins on the beach and was amazed at how beautiful they turned out. Art indeed does imitate life!
Eye candy galore!
And yes, I did not want to leave paradise.
