Inspiration

Filed under: inspiration,tag — natha @ 1:50 pm


People are always curious about inspiration. I took these picture in my garden of things that I find beautiful because pretty things inspire me- Rich color variations, organic beauty, interesting shapes… Take a look at the way the colors shift in the mint leaves- the transition from bright spring green to the dark forest green is just mouth watering. The delicacy of the poppy petals contrasts with the sturdy seed pod while the lovely salmon color is an unexpected match with the black half moons that make up the bottom of the petal. Amazing isn’t it?


Another favorite way to find inspiration is through fellow artists. One such artist Sarah brundage of ThistleDowns wool designs tagged me and asked me to answer 6 questions and then tag 5 more artists- how fun! I’ll show you the original 6 but I’m going to make up new ones just for fun…

The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answers.

Sparkling Gemstone Heaven

Filed under: denver merchandise mart,gemstones,pearls,sparkle — natha @ 1:59 am

Giant saucer jewels I purchased at the last show

Stones and pearls in lush shades of green…

Now that I’m busy writing copy for the new collections that will be launched soon on nathaperkins.com, I find my head full of dramatic adjectives- words like dreamy and luscious are floating around in there on constant rotation. While thinking along these lines I remembered that the Classic International Gem and Jewelry Show was coming to Denver this weekend. I’m like a magpie drawn to shiny objects anyway, but these shows have me fantasizing about new creamy colored pearls and candy colored gemstones. I’m getting chills just thinking about it. This particular show is being held at the Denver Merchandise Mart and will be in a massive building with row after row of vendors presiding over tables simply piled with beautiful gems, pearls, rocks, crystals, and a few random things like silk robes (?). The best thing about these shows is that every time I come home with a bag full of new toys (aka gems) I know I have another 4 months of inspiration comin my way!
