Last Sunday was a gray and rainy day. We pulled out the umbrella, dressed Toby in his raincoat, and walked around town snapping photos and getting some Painting Inspiration.

Power and phone lines are so very interesting to me.
These are the power lines in front of the food pantry where I hang out and are just a few blocks from our home....and now, after really studying them, I'm pretty sure I know why the lights flicker on and off in our living room.
and, this is the painting that was inspired by those interesting lines.

The painting looks pretty good against the red brick walls of Bridging the Gap.

"My inspiration comes from all over....pieces are often based in reality,
actual places, things I've held in the palm of my hand,
and yet they are infused and layered
with places where I've only been in my dreams. "
Colin Poole, super fantastic painter and sculptor
