There was an idea... Sara wrote, "... it would challenge me to get out of my comfort zone... get my brain working in different ways." I replied, "I've had a restless feeling that it's time for something new... different... challenging..."
72 hours and countless e-mails later, our idea had a name, a blog, an Instagram account, a Pinterest board, and participants were invited.
In the last 24 months, I have indeed been challenged to think and create outside my comfort zone. I know I've grown as a painter, writer, and friend because of my work with Inspiration Collaboration.
My first inspiration image was SnowCardinal. Winter Cardinal brings me full-circle as my last inspiration image.

I do think they’re beautiful flowers, but my favorite kind is spelled a different way… My four (five soon) grandkids are so lucky to have my Ron for their Pop-E.
I do love the way this poppy painting turned out. I'm going to enjoy it on my wall until someone decides they need it for their own. I painted them in response to Sara's beautiful poppy portrait photograph on November's Inspiration Collaboration.

Yep, we have a fixer upper.
Nope, it was never our dream, but we just bought the house next door.
Yeah, it's hard work!
No, we don't know what we're doing; luckily my brother does.
Yes, we're having fun with it.
No, it's nowhere near finished.
We walk out our front door and cross the yard, apologize to the deer who've been resting in the strip of woods between the houses, and enter the yard of our fall project.
For 45 years it was Mary's house.
Now we call it The Merry House.
