Sometimes inspiration is more of a feeling, a mood, a color.
This pod, from one of our many backyard Pygmy Date Palms, inspires on all those levels. The colors are so beautifully natural, the feeling is one of peace and calmness with just enough tension to feel alive and ready to create. The light is so soft and the shadow adds the perfect touch of drama.
I don't know what I'll bead in response to this, but i know being surrounded by things of serene beauty is certainly a good start.
