500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #482 – Mostly Yellow

Mostly Yellow Musings of the Artists Mind Ok, I went a little wild with exposure on this one and found a way to balance it enough to keep this gorgeous yellow in the forefront. I love this yellow.

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #481 – As We Change

As We Change Musings of the Artists Mind This flower is simply amazing! I had originally noticed that each plant had flowers of different colours and wondered why. Then I watched one for a whole day and saw that each flower transitions from light pinks to dark blues and then wilts into a dry brown. … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #481 – As We Change

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #480 – Resilient

Resilient Musings of the Artists Mind No matter how much rain falls on this flower, it remains solid. The petals feel like stiff plastic in the dry sun and don’t loose their rigidity in the rain or when I water them. They are strong and present. I needed to give them a place in the … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #480 – Resilient

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #479 – Rhymes With Orange

Rhymes With Orange Musings of the Artists Mind Snapdragon flowers are as beautiful as they are vibrant. I found a complete garden of them in the public gardens of Quebec City. The contrast between the dark green foliage and bright orange hues of the flowers lends itself beautifully to paintings like those of Henri Rousseau. … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #479 – Rhymes With Orange

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #478 – Rose Marble

Rose Marble Musings of the Artists Mind The closer I zoomed in on this flower the more it looked like a colour bloom in a sheet of marble.  These flowers are fragile and the petals so very thin, one can almost see through them. I felt it needed to be made more solid and permanent. … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #478 – Rose Marble

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #477 – Rousseau’s Inspiration

Rousseau's Inspiration Musings of the Artists Mind The painter Henri Rousseau painted atmospheric creepiness, but that was never his intention. His Naive style was filled with love, happiness, and life. I think what made them creepy was his unique ability to paint the shadowy recesses behind the focal point of the painting and somehow make … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #477 – Rousseau’s Inspiration

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #476 – Sister Light

Sister Light Musings of the Artists Mind I reached deep into the darkness of the thick foliage and saw where the finger of God-light shone. It had found a small plant with pure white flowers. The flowers screamed gratitude for the light that shone on them and they emitted joy and blessings to anyone lucky … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #476 – Sister Light

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #475 – Collage By M. Nature

Collage By M. Nature Musings of the Artists Mind These are tiny flowers. The closer I got to them the more it felt like they were made of paper. While processing the photo, I started to see them jump from the page, as if glued to its surface. It felt like a collage. A kids … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #475 – Collage By M. Nature

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #474 – Restaurant Walls

Restaurant Walls Musings of the Artists Mind It feels like this should be the back wall of some over-the-top Italian or Greek restaurant. The faux-marbling effect gives it both quaintness and kitschiness that lightened the experience of the meal and infuses the wine with even more giggles than usual. Unless, you are simply too serious … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #474 – Restaurant Walls
