I recently started following the Inspiration Avenue blog. They feature a weekly themed challenge for your artwork. This week was the first time that I read the challenge on time and it worked out for me to make an entry! Even on the weeks that I don't get to the challenge, I still enjoy thinking about how I could interpret it and seeing what other people come up with. The theme for this week is "On the Wings of Inspiration"- what inspires you? When I think about what inspires my artwork I come up with color, texture, and nature. I think that's why I really enjoy night photography and keep adding to my series. Color and texture are definitely my favorite Elements of Art and I emphasize them when I make my own artwork
I keep thinking my garden is done for the year and then I get a nice surprise! I have some beautiful cosmos blooming right now. We are supposed to get a hard freeze this week so I'm glad I made myself go out in the cold night to make some photos. You can see some of my other night photography on my Flickr account!
