Flower Shoppe Inspirations

Welcome.  I am so happy that you stopped by.  My garden gate is always open for you to come in and sit and relax with a cup of tea while I share with you the inspirations for my art.


Bentley, my Studio Assistant, has not bee able to find any flower inspirations as our garden is not yet in bloom.  Thankfully I have lots of photographs of  flower markets to  use for inspiration during the winter months.

Finding inspiration . . . . . . 




Here . . . . . . 


There . . . . . .

Everywhere . . . . . .



As you can see from the photographs I had lots of inspiration for my Flower Shoppe painting.


I was inspired by the painting to re-arrange the day bed in my office by changing the pillows around so I could hang the new painting over the day bed. The room is always filled with sun and a wonderful place to curl up and read.






Thank you for stopping by.  I love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate your visits, e-mails, comments and those who follow my blog.  Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to see me paint something special.

Have a lovely week.   Blessings, Erin
