Inspiration

There's so much to see in the countryside, it's just a case of tuning in to it.



I'm really enjoying leaf structures, the backs are full of amazing lines, these are going to find themselves into my pots somehow I'm sure.



The autumn's going to be beautiful. This leaf's spectacular.



Mud's getting me going too, particularly imprints. This is a special one, from one of my favourite puddles - you can tell I'm excited, by the fact that I have a favourite puddle. Tyre tracks and deer footprints. I like mud a lot.

This is a great post. I completely agree with the "it's just a case of tuning in to it." I think that applies to everything everywhere. It's all about having an open mind.

I thought the mud was a close-up of a pot as well.

Hi Jerry, Ang
It's all out there isn't it? I think the answer to every question about form, decoration, composition is there if you can tune in to it, sometimes it's hard to see the wood for the trees, that's when fine tuning is required. My kids used to have a pet mantis that they fed live crickets - pretty horrible really. One day they put too many in to the mantis' tank and it's head was going evrywhere trying to focus on its next meal. I feel a bit like that sometimes when I'm out and about!

The mud's great round here - there's so much clay in our soil. It'd be amazing to take some casts, maybe one day I'll get it together to do that.
