Inspiration from all dimensions..even nail polish

Sometimes accidents can cause a huge spark of inspiration...a piece breaks off of what we are carving..but the broken shape is fantastic..or we cut a pice of wood for a bowl and see this amazing grain inside....this bowl is made form a wood called Silk Oak. We collected it after a hurricane when we lived in Florida..if we had any idea how beautiful it was we would have collected a tree full! but inspiration also comes from words, colors, sounds,mirror images, movies, music, dreams.....i recently started to wear  dark green nail polish, that i had bought just to do leaves on little flowers on my nails..and i can' t believe how much i love wearing it on my whole nail! Ever since i was about 2 years old, my Aunt started painting my finger and toe nails and they have barely ever been naked since then! But usually on my fingers i stick to lighter, traditional colors...not now. This green is rocking my world!!! it  is making me feel bold and creative, kinda like how i feel in high heels..even thought they kill my feet and i rarely wear them, they make me feel powerful and bold. So anyway, this green nail polish has been making my hands just feel like they can do anything! well, my hands don't really feel like they can do it but my brain makes them think they can:0)

  1. That is a beautiful bowl. I would love to own one of your bowls one day, even if I'm not sure what I would do with it.(I love green nail polish, too.)
