Hummingbird

Images like this (via National Geographic) always give me a reality check. They take my mind off all the lifeless material things, and show me just how creative and gorgeous the world is. Of course, I LOVE the Miu Miu shoes below… but no shoe could ever compete with nature, especially a prismatic bird like this one

How gorgeous is it?? The colors.. texture.. movement. The fact that it is a living breathing thing is beyond me!

Oh, and how incredibly TINY this Wine-Throated Hummingbird is… wow. Magic!!

Imagine a dress inspired by this…!

P.S. HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Print now available for purchase HERE

    Mother nature does some wonderous things. Even simple things like the colour of a grapefruit amaze me. And I absolutely agree that an outfit inspired by the sweet thing would be gorgeous.

  8. I blogged about it as well – from one watercolorist to another, this is just a wonderful use of saturated pigments and black. Hope to send you some traffic. :)

    Katie,
    Thank you so much for the inspiration and for the link to the picture. I did my own version from the same picture (hope is ok with you that i did it), of course is not as beautiful as yours. But it feels good to try.

    Your work always inspires me and makes the day more beautiful.
    Have a nice day :)
