Garden Inspiration

I find that sometimes I need to go to a beautiful, outdoor space to expand my creativity. Nature inspires much of my art and writing, but this is about being in the moment. Resting and observing are key. No specific goal.

The Japanese Garden at Descanso Gardens in La Canada Flintridge, CA is one of my favorite places to explore. I have tutored a friend in watercolor painting here and gained inspiration before my own Japanese garden existed. There’s stones as beach, mountains, and language. Water sounds are calming. The reflections an adventure in themselves.

Autumn meant colorful leaves in the water, warm light, and a few blossoms. I found that upon returning home; ideas for new stories, poetry experiments, and next steps in my art become clearer.
