Yesterday was a turning point for me creatively. Thoughts and ideas all came together while I wrote this post & got me excited to head to the studio to create my first pieces of the New Year. I was listening to the song ”Things Happen” by Dawes (which I love!) last night while cooking dinner & thought to myself, today is a good day.
Last week I drove out of town and went by the same building that has got my attention dozens of times. The difference this time was, I parked my car & got out to capture photos of the architecture that peaked my interest. That blue, oh how I adore it. The chipped paint, the cracks in the stucco…you might think I took this on holiday in some tropical destination! The reality is, it was freezing cold & I was in Omemee, Ontario, where Neil Young grew up & described as “a sleepy little place.” Population 1200.
It’s hard to describe what exactly has inspired me so I thought I would share some photos that got me thinking. Lines, colours, light, texture & interiors…some of my favourite things.
I love a good laugh & my hubby & I are enjoying the Canadian show Schitt’s Creek currently on Netflix. I haven’t laughed this much since I binged New Girl, it makes me happy. Last night the episode we watched, Moira was going to have a sparkling White Russian, but had to drink it before the milk curdled. Who thinks of these things?! Mr. Dan Levy (son of Eugene) shown above is the creator. That colourful backdrop is giving me all the feels.
Stay warm friends it’s freezing out!
