Painting a Day 6

Always looking for inspiration... I like to look through catalogs... great for Still Life paintings... wondering... if the artists of the past had access to catalogs would they paint via photos like these...
Ballard Design...
Pottery Barn...




I was inspired to paint this... and I look forward to painting more from ALL of the photos above when I have extra time...  this painting is AVAILABLE... as a card... a print... or the ORIGINAL painting... Email for details!

Be sure to visit other Tablescape Thursday posts and see what others are painting for Laura Trevey's Painting a Day challenge!  TOMORROW begins Fifi's FRIDAY GIVEAWAY CHALLENGE... tell us a story about my PAINTING... and you will be entered to win FASHIONABLE Fifi Flowers artwork!!!  Don't forget to visit My Shop... 20%off til Jan 7th, 2011!!!

It's lovely, Fifiness! I wondered where all you got your inspirations. I guess I'd never thought of catalogs! :)

Yes, I think artists from the past would definitely have taken inspiration from catalogues--if they looked like the ones we have today. Some cataloges are as nice as getting a new decor magazine in the mail! Of course, your paintings take them to an even higher level!
Best,
Susan

Fifi your work is so much lovelier than reality! : ) I enjoy looking for great ideas in catalogs and magazines, too - so fun to get that little jolt and then head to the canvas! warm hugs from sunny Dallas!
