~ Ocean Inspiration ~

I am always on the lookout for inspiration for my Sea Quilts.  And I find it in some interesting places.  Just yesterday I was at my FedEx place and on my way to drop something off, saw this card for sale.  It very literally stopped me in my tracks.  It's a painting by Ching Walters.  It definitely inspires me.

These next two came from one of my very favorite inspiration blogs, Completely Coastal.  She often features the work of coastal artists. I pin off her frequently.

This one is 3-dimensional art from ... Home Goods.  It hangs in my studio, pretty much right above my head as I am typing this.

The translation from inspiration to product is not always straight across.  My crabby friend inspired me to make this crabby quilt.

All of these things make me happy.  Not Crabby.
How about you?
