Inspired by...

Inspiration:  The coolest wooden planter on the patio outside of our room at the Casa Blanca Inn in Farmington, NM.  I immediately fell for the simple yet bold carvings and knew I wanted to recreate the flower motif in some fashion.  It was really hard to not be inspired by the beauty of the New Mexico landscape and culture. 

Outcome:  Voila...a new Mother's Day card!  (Or it could be birthday, thank you, etc.)  Instead of using just one flower image, I decided to create a cluster of blooms.  I drew from the landscape to determine the color palette as well.  The colors of New Mexico are absolutely breathtaking!
