My Inspiration Board

Another glimpse into my work space.  When we renovated the studio we created this bulletin board out of salvaged trim from inside our house (original 1920's trim, complete with layers of old paint and chips) and a roll of cork.  I use it as an inspiration board.  It's on the wall directly across from my work desk so I'm constantly glancing at it while I'm creating. 
The board is about 4 feet long by 2 feet high.   Plenty of space for inspiring STUFF.  :)

One of my business post cards, sketches for futures paintings, Stonehenge greeting card, and a cool little guy I drew in one of my sketchbooks.  Liked him so much I put him on the board.  I call him "The Keeper" because I imagine him to be a guardian of ancient secrets.

The Keeper up close.

A couple of Buddhas, some Hemingway pics, a chart of stones and their healing properties, tin sign with a full moon face, and a visual representation of my studio. 

My studio in images. Made with ink pads, spiral stencils, black masking tape, white Staz-On and letter stamps, washing tape for the borders.  The words around the edges represent all the things I hope to cultivate in my studio space. 

Love me some Hem.

Another sketchbook drawing.  Pencil and black acrylic.

St. Brigid's cross and a postcard of an Giacometti?
