New Places, New Inspirations

This is the time of year when John and I love to travel and experience new places. Going somewhere new is a great way to get inspired with fresh ideas.


One thing that always interests us both are places with history, so this time it’s Colonial America and going during the 4th of July seems like a good idea. What better place than Jamestown, Virginia , where the first colonial settelment was started by the English, followed by Yorktown and Williamsburg.


The kinds of inspiration I hope to find? Costumed characters, people working at old word crafts, floral and fauna not usually found in my familiar southwest landscape.

Several years ago I painted this type of subject in “Braiding her hair”, (above)
and another of a seasoned woodworker in “At the Bench”, (below)
It will be interested to see what we find!
