I hope my latest posts come up on your stream!
Memorial Day is much more than a long weekend and the kick off for summer. Deeply rooted in the aftermath of the Civil War, it lead to a long lived national holiday that acknowledges so many of the brave souls who gave their lives for the freedoms we have bestowed upon us today.
What many of us may not be aware of, is the National Moment of Remembrance Act. On each Memorial Day, 3pm (local time) is designated as National Moment of Remembrance, in honor of the men and women of the United States who dies in pursuit of freedom and peace.
Why 3pm? Well, it is the time when most Americans are enjoying their freedoms of the national day.
So take a pause. Raise a glass. Wave a flag. And remember.
What is your ideal workspace? A loaded question, and quite variable for each artist. I prefer mine to be bright with light, somewhat organized (what is art without a little chaos), and filled with color and inspiration.
Lately, I’ve come across retro fashion books, pin ups, and style icons. Skimming through these pages, I note images that stand out in both form, colors and a certain.. “je ne sais quoi.” Pardon the cliche, but how can one resist a little touch of CocoChanel herself or Alberto Vargas’ sultry poses.
And then again, there are the mundane and simple things, like a spoon, that can instantly turn into something more.
So whatever your ideal workspace may entail. Be sure to make it fitting to your own needs and ability to create. For sometimes, all you may truly need is a boost of inspiration and a good brush.
