On the days I don't hit the gym, I walk around Silverlake reservoir. It's a beautiful walk filled with trees, flowers and a dose of much needed peace before I tackle my day. I almost always leave with a tiny notebook and a pen so that I can jot down any ideas I have because my BEST ideas hit when I'm not able to write them down. Every day on my walk I pass a spot littered with huge leaves that almost look prehistoric, they're so big. It's easy to imagine the dinosaurs munching on them. Every time I pass these leaves I swear I'm going to bring some home to paint......and this week, I finally did. I spent a relaxing morning with coffee and jazz just painting on my free, dinosaur snack, canvases.
Next time you need some new materials to paint on, head out for a walk.
Enjoy! xoxox, Mark
