Isn't inspiration the most amazing thing? I read once that creativity is not a piece of pie that we have to greedily horde our share, fearing that our source may run out. There is a never ending supply of creative spins on everything we have seen, experienced, dreamt and things we can't yet imagine. I like to think of creativity as an ocean; all encompassing, something that is life-giving, overwhelming at times and a mistress to so many.
Kelly's efforts for the Ripple fundraiser has sparked artists' imaginations and creativity across the globe as we try to offer some hope during this sad time.
For my cards I sketched onto watercolor paper and then pulled out the paints. We've been painting together as a family this summer, so it's been fun and freeing to try my hand a different medium. Above is a sketch featuring the characters from those cards and that guy buried in the sand is the same fellow you see in the banner above. I've worked up a story for them and their day at the beach. Thanks Kelly for yet another ripple - inspiration!
