Nature is the art of God – la natura e l’arte di Dio.
Where can you turn to when you have run out of ideas? How about looking up and looking out of the window? Sometimes you may have to peer quite closely to find the inspiration that you seek, and sometimes it will be splashed across the sky!
When you are looking for…
- a colour palette: look at a bed of flowers, or a sunset, or a foggy morning at the lake.
- patterns: look at the colour lines on your cat or the markings inside a cut ponga log or a butterfly’s wings.
- shapes: look at the silhouettes of trees or a bowl of berries or a curled fern frond.
Can you see the perfection in nature (that is, nature that has not been tampered with by Man)? I have heard the saying that “God doesn’t make mistakes“…one only has to look around us to see that is true. All creation is available for you to draw on freely for your next painting, design or craft project, speech topic or interior decorating foray. An endless inspiration resource is only a glance away!
