Creative Inspirations

"Creative Inspirations"

Many times I'm asked where it is I get my Inspirations for my colorful compositions.  So today I decided to share with y'all a few of my greatest contributors.  Meet my Nephew, Aiden, and my two Nieces, Caroline & Brooke.

These precious little bunnies offer their Aunt Terri some of the richest inspirational joy imaginable.  It's through some of their wonderful day-to-day experiences that I'm always previledged to draw from.  There's such a tender innocense in their childhood stories that I hope I'm properly bringing to the canvas.
 Children are such Sweetness and Light!  They are the Magic in the Air, and the Reason I'm encouraged to paint every day.  I leave y'all today with a Beautiful Poem written with what I believe was Children in mind.

  • Hope is the thing with feathers

  • That perches in the soul

  • And sings the tune without the words

  • And never stops at all

Sending Blessings, Love & Sunday Sunshine To All,

G'day, sweet Terri ~

Hugs to Mother & you all ~

Hi Terri,
What a lovely post about your nieces and nephew. You can see the personality of each child very clearly in the first photograh.
They are adorable.

Lovely children!

Noni at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Oh, Terri, your nieces and nephew are so very blessed to have you for their aunt. Children are indeed wonderful, wonderful blessings to us... they remind us of all things sacred and good and full of hope. They cause us to dream bigger, work harder, dig a little deeper. I am glad yours have you in their lives... and, vise versa.

Terri, I would have to agree with Noni - you must be the best aunt ever! Those children are so blessed indeed. And they are so adorable! I have a special place in my heart for all children. They are all so precious. That's just one more reason why I love your work so much! Have a great week Terri!

The children look to be straight from a proper English home.

I love the top photo, the poses and the room, the whole feel of it.

Would make a lovely painting...

Glad to here your husband (and the others) were unharmed...physically at least.

The world is cram packed with people, it's a lesson to slow down and look twice.

Love :)
