Look at these colors I found in Italy

I’m currently traveling in Italy and have seen so many cool things. Lake Como, for one, is a beautiful town with a long history of speed boat racing. A museum there features exquisite old boats and I was so taken with everything about them. The painted surface colors are especially rich and unique and look so good when combined with the soft warm golden tones of varnished wood so often used on these boats. The numbers on the boats, and the interiors are slick and beautiful too. I cannot wait to return to the studio with these new color combinations in mind. It’s so good to get out into the world, away from the studio. You never know what you’ll find inspiring!

What’s inspired you lately that you’ve seen out in the world?

Let me know in the comments.

In this week’s Art2Life Podcast, I have an amazing conversation with artist Daniel Wurtzel, who noticed something long ago that no one else did. It ended up leading him to a new kind of art. It is called air sculpture and frankly, I’ve never seen anything like it. I can’t wait to share this with you. Have a listen to our conversation coming out this Wednesday on the Art2Life Podcast.
