INSPIRATIONAL SUNDAY

Hubby and I hadn't done anything but work for...well...FOREVER it seems...so today, instead of dutifully coming home from church and painting...we went on a walk...Hope you find some bit of inspiration in what I took notice of...for one...this beautiful little pine cone...of which I plan to paint one of these days...I have a great need to understand why these little cones grow upside down??  I'm going to have to find a book that talks all about it...and IF I find one...I'll share the whys along with my paintings!!  As always...any photo here you are welcome to use as reference for paintings...my only request...share it with me...just cuz I LOVE to see what you do!!
Oh. yes...I forgot...I went to the CORE GALLERY show last Friday night...it was fun!...OK, back to inspiration...
OH...another thing...I'm not just IGNORING painting...working on this bird for my aunt who just loved the pic...will show photo when it is finished...NOW, back to inspiration...:)
I just love tree trunks...I'm sure these pines will be in a painting one of these days...look at that awesome diagonal...
Most people say to me that pine cones are hard to paint...I BEG TO DIFFER...just look for the lights and darks and patterns...a FUN challenge!!
Oops...how did this little guy get in here??  Well, since he is already here and smiling at us all...it's my little grandson Paxton sitting in his big boy chair at a restaurant for the very first time!!  YEA PAXTON...
Gotta LOVE those aspen trunks!!
Lucky birds!  If I were a bird I'd love this house hanging off...what is it you say??...an ASPEN!
A lovely bouquet of pine cones...are you getting the feeling I photographed a lot of pine cones??  Yep.
OH, look what followed me home??  
he wanted a close-up shot...it's a little blurry, but I was tryin to catch the awesome cerulean blue that was underneath his...his...hmmm...pods?, leaves?...pokey out things??...Oops, another thing to look up!!

HAPPY SUNDAY CREATING!!

Hah, Saundra! Your post left me chuckling out loud. I'm no expert, but I suspect the cones grow downwards so as to drop seeds maybe? Or could it be because they are too heavy to grow up? Who knows, but if you do look it up, I'm curious now too! Sounds like you had a lovely weekend with your hubby and the photos are - as always - amazing! And look at the Gerber baby mouth! I don't think I've ever seen another in real life. Paxton is a handsome guy!!

Thanks for the thought Sherry! A good guess...I'm going to look it up and share the answer! Yep, I love that mouth!!
