The thing I love most yet find the most frustrating about art is that you never know when inspiration is going to hit you. One of my friends and I decided to take a morning off from my art/design, her photography and being mommies, in general, to hang out in Old Town Alexandria, have lunch, and peruse a few shops. It was such a lovely spring day after so many weeks of winter that it felt wrong to NOT be outside. Walking along the historic streets of Old Town is really inspiring and this day was no different. After lunch, we came across the bike in the top picture and both of us got out our cameras. The bike looked like it was strategically staged there for us to take pictures of and then soon afterward, I came across this two-tone building in almost the exact same tones as the bike from earlier. The beautiful color scheme is inspiration for another artwork of mine and photography by her. You just never know when that beautiful muse of inspiration will find you and even better when found with a friend in tow! Here's hoping that the beauty of spring and in life inspires you like it has me - Happy Designing!
