Inspiration Board: Take Me to the City

Take me to the city… preferably somewhere in France?  Or maybe Spain?  Really, I’m not picky.  In fact, I can’t complain; I can hop in my car, drive for 20 minutes and be in the midst downtown Charleston.

I was attracted to these pieces individually because of their warmth, light/dark contrast, and illustrative feel.  When they were combined, the collection became a warm, magical, and imaginative story in my head. Something about a simple girl with larger than life dreams leaving one life for another… with a few exciting and adventurous tales mixed in.   Isn’t it amazing how a single image can convey so much information and emotion as to tell an entire story?

Check back tomorrow to see some little oil paintings I’ve been working on.  I’m rather fond of them!
