Color… at Sunrise, and Sunset

Color palettes can come from many things.

I am often drawn to acts of nature as a source of inspiration, so here are some images to inspire.

To the left, you have the sunset, as I sometimes see from my back yard. We are looking over the Pacific Ocean, about 4 miles away.

There is nothing like a sunrise. This magnificent one occurred in New Mexico in August. I love the feeling I get when I am up early enough to witness a sunrise. I feel like I own the world.

And now, ... sunset, as witnessed in New Mexico

and the moon.

Art Around Us

In the process of developing one’s creativity, it is important to not only look at the world around us, but to ‘see’ things that excite us.

Here are a few images; one a form of utility (the bike stand) and the other, simply art.

Both are creatively executed. These were taken at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. The workers are removing the graffiti to make room for the next installation.
