Inspired by the Neighbours – Blogging 101

Well today we were to comment on and link to a blog we connected to yesterday. That was difficult – having to choose only one which inspired me, but the one I finally decided on was this one:

http://annettebennett.com/

Annette inspired me with her use of watercolours and the lovely animals she’s drawn. They seem to come alive on the page with a wise, thoughtful expression or as she calls it the Art-itude she gives them. It’s a lovely site and the paintings are beautiful. I’m aiming to be a regular visitor there, and a lot of the others I’ve found, which I’ve been inspired by too, but I’m sure you’ll love Annette’s. Her website page says: ‘Farm Animals with A Watercolour Art-itude’, and they certainly do have that. I thinks it’s a really original idea – to paint farmyard animals in stunning watercolours.

I wanted to paint so I took the subject at school. I knew I wasn’t any good when the teacher studied a painting I’d done, then took me to the side and asked, “Why are you here? Why did you choose Art?” I tell you I was crushed. Wasn’t it plainly obvious why I had chosen Art? Because I LURVED ❤ ❤ him with all of my 15 year old heart and hormones.To think that he didn’t realise how big a crush I had on him, was disappointing. So all those little smirks he gave me weren’t because he secretly liked me too, they were because he thought my drawings were funny; smirk-worthy funny! I happened to like all the matchstick men, women and dogs I drew. They had a certain, well, simplicity to them. He didn’t believe me when I said probably some of the best painters started off drawing matchstick men. He said, “Yeah, maybe when they were 4 or 5 but you’re nearly 16,” Okay, so I was a late developer. I think matchstick figures have a certain elegance to them…a simplicity (just like me?) Let me know what (or who) inspired you, and why 🙂
