Art Supply Organization

Colored Pencils
in child-size cowgirl boots
{the little feet outgrew}

Paint Brushes in a Swan

Brush-tipped Markers in a crystal vase

And Chalk in Little Starbucks Mugs

Art Supplies
In Creative Storage Containers are So Fun!

I've been hemming curtains but the art supplies are calling!
There's now a large empty white canvas hanging on the bedroom wall
waiting for the summery painting that will soon appear,
and I need to work on my latest dog painting commission.

I thought if I hung up a blank canvas,
looking at it would cause inspiration to attack.
After removing the more wintery colors from our bedroom
and brightening it up with whites, some new artwork was needed.
I've got my paints out and am going to paint it right there on the wall.
{if I can decide what to paint}


Update:  I painted a 4'x5' ocean / sky scene yesterday for the bedroom wall
and will share it soon.  In the meantime, I am thinking this
post may have enough whites in it to join in on
Blissful Whites Wednesday on Becky's blog

IS THIS NOT THE COOLEST THING, to put your brushes in these boots? What can I say my friend, but that you are truly an inspiration yourself. LOVELY IDEAS HERE, but those boots really do take the cake.

I am anxious to see what you will be painting for summer!!!! LOVE! Anita

Palomasea said...

Me too, Anita!! I would love to see your new Summer painting, dear Violet!
I had actually left a comment last night, but it looks like blogger is acting up has disappeared...
I also commented on your fabulous idea of the sweet little boots as pencil holders...brilliant! :)
Thank you, dearest Violet, for your lovely visit...and the constant inspiration...
Blessings and love,
- Irina

I've been out of touch from Blogland for a few months so really enjoyed getting caught up on your blog. Just love all the pretty Spring photos you're sharing.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Oh, here are those fabulous BOOTS! Ahhhh.....

Well my dear, you have left a trail of many wonderful things in my heart; from gifts to glitter, companionship every day, to the sisterhood. And like you, I think I could leave a trail as such, with those HEELS and frock on the steps of a Parisian home!!!!!

Enjoy your day my dear. Anita
