I started a mixed media class last week with Lendon Noe, hosted by Carla Sonheim. The online class is called, “Inspired by Place.”
I find it an intriguing subject.
Is place a home, perhaps a memory such as a childhood home? Is place a feeling, a sense of calm from being with nature? Or is place from your imagination? There are many other possibilities!
I was inspired to create this collaged landscape of a place I hold dear to my heart in my art journal:
It is a view of Chimney Rock at Priest Lake, Idaho.
I love this place! It holds a special memory where I have been spending my summers since childhood. It brings me a feeling of peace when I see it in person and from photographs such as this one:
And it is a place that I sometimes go in my imagination when I need to relax.
What place inspires you? I hope you share it with me!
