inspiration monday


it's true what they say:  inspiration really will strike when you least expect it.  the other day i was surfing through my new pottery barn catalog, and when i saw these fabulous birdcages.....



this image popped into my brain and i had to doodle it onto some paper right away!  i'm not sure why the birdcage is sitting on top of a box, but inspiration is a little kooky that way sometimes!
{i'm also not sure why the birdcage doesn't have a door.....maybe that's why the little birdie is so happy?!}

doodle finished onto a separate piece of paper and added to my journal......
watercolor, watercolor pencil, micron pens, 4B pencil

I love my PB catalog! I hold on to them for inspiration (and a little fantasizing about having such roomy/organized/clean spaces).

Lovely little sketch Lori.

that the bird cage doesn.t have a door is just so wonderful for that little bird who now can fly free! i am off to find where i put my copy of the new pottery barn. maybe if im lucky i.ll get a tad bit of inspiration too.

You got my curiosity up again today .... I saw the catalog photo and a few lead-in words from your post in my "dashboard" view. Just had to pop on over here to see what you were up to. Darling sketch!! I just never know what to expect from you except that I always smile!

You have been blessed with such a talent - do you feel a stamp coming on with this sketch I wonder?
