Looking for inspiration... its right in front of you..

I often find that I struggle with the start of each project. As we speak, I have a blank canvas that was supposed to be my mom's Christmas gift, hanging in my living room waiting for that bright idea to motivate me.  I have a vague idea of what I want to do, but the overwhelming possibilities of the design details can drive me crazy.  When I find myself with "artists block", I personally look around me for inspiration. 

I went shopping with a friend of my for accessories for her new apartment. I went with her because she was afraid of color...... very afraid. At the store, I found a pillow that captured my attention right away.  The bright blues, greens and teals work together with the leaves and peacock style flowers, for a very contemporary and classic feel. 

Here is the painting up close.
