Natural Inspiration

I've been spending alot of time hiking and exploring on the mild days interspersed in our Carolina winter. On a recent walk at the trail out at the Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores I was attracted to the wonderful colors of the lichens on the bark of the holly trees there. I took a couple snapshots. These look like abstract paintings in themselves.

Nature influences me in so many ways - shapes and colors like these, and emotionally by the lift it gives my spirit.

Finally got back in the studio today after taking a break for awhile. Feels good. We had an unusual 6 inches of snow yesterday and it's reflecting glorious light into my studio. More inspiration! Hopefully I'll have something to show for it soon...
