I am often asked where my creative inspirations come from.  I love the solitude of my walks with my dog Mac.  My mind is free to wander as I look at my surroundings (from houses and flowers to the sand and the ocean to the nearby mountains), the beauty of where I live is endlessly inspiring.  The walks clear my head of the “daily this and that”, freeing me to think creatively (if I am lucky).  I am enjoying summertime and all that it brings.  Putting the finishing touches on my latest pieces as I wait for that moment of inspiration that will be my next big project.

I thought I would share some dog photos (who doesn’t love a cute dog?) from recent walks I have taken in my neighborhood.

Odin and Mac at Will Rogers Beach

Odin and Mac at Will Rogers Beach, Pacific Palisades, CA

Mac and I shared our walking time recently with our “grand-dog” Odin who was staying with us while his “parents” were in Europe for two weeks.  You can see in the photo that they were enjoying their day at the beach.

Mac is loves his benches…if I attempt to walk past one, he puts his head down and refuses to walk.  Sometimes we linger for a moment and other times we sit for many minutes taking in the world around us…giving me time to daydream.

    Mac and Odin look like they were having a good time. I also love walking my dog Ginger, and walking is a great to mull over creative projects. See you in Long Beach!
