If you follow me on Instagram, then you know how my morning went. Here's a quick synoposis if you don't (but you should!) ::
Woke up two hours before my alarm. Not unusual, as I generally *think* myself back to sleep. I'll imagine colors, palettes, forms I want to create when I wake at the correct time - and the gentle undulation of pigments and hues lulls me back into dreams. This particular morning, I knew it wasn't possible.
Too many things on my plate, too many ideas to think through.
So I threw on my shoes and popped outside for a run. I was just crossing the bridge to the beach as the pink sun broke through the clouds, illuminating the sky with fiery reds and oranges. Sure the traffic can be rough, but the sky in Miami is unlike no other.
After stopping periodically to take about a bajillion photos (I certainly wasn't aiming for a PR on this run!) and to breathe in the cool (ish) morning ocean air, I returned home full of inspiration and pretty much drenched in sweat.
It was wonderful.
Once in the studio, I decided to make a few quick cloud-inspired studies, then set work to a new linen canvas with my liquid acrylics.
I'm really enjoying playing with the sample set of liquid acrylics I purchased... will definitely have to pick up a few more colors (and an industrial sized bottle of indigo!)
And now, it's time for a nap.
