Outside A Window

I love the view of this crabapple tree outside my kitchen window:

This photo was taken in May when the tree was showing its spectacular pink blossoms!

I decided to add a photo of it to my mixed media sketchbook as the tree inspires me all four seasons!  I colored the photo with color pencils so the flowers stood out.

And below is the Robin that I painted and showed you in my last post:

Inspiration of place can sometimes come from what we see outside a window in our home… Below is a photo of both pages together in my art journal.

What view inspires YOU, outside a window?  I hope you share it with me!

Cheers! 🙂

  2. I have a similar view outside my bedroom window. I love my tree in the spring when it’s in full bloom but it’s the squirrels that scurry along the branches that come to mind.

  8. I love the view outside our patio screened-in windows. Beautiful birds, chatty chipmunks, playful bunnies, and silly squirrels. So relaxing – and entertaining! Your tree is absolutely glorious when in bloom!

  9. Wow! That pink is gorgeous! And so cool to see the crabapple in your journal during different seasons. Your robin looks even lovelier with its journal decorations and the beautiful handwritten words writing him into a moment in time. 🙂
