A Positive Look to the Week Ahead

I've had such an amazing amount of inspiration this week. Lots of "art dates" with friends, and many solo jaunts around town too. Saw the Keith Haring exhibit at the DeYoung museum, spent an afternoon perusing books in Japantown at the most awesome bookstore around: Kinokinuya. I took a few beach walks, had lunch with friends and basically just fed my creative soul.

I've really been getting into my illustrations lately, and feel like I've hit my stride. You know things are clicking when you can't wait to get home to finish a painting or project. Creative juices don't always flow like that, so when they do, I take advantage!  Here's a piece I've been working on colorizing. I painted it a few weeks ago in black, and have had some fun trying out different color ways. Here's one scheme I kinda love. Thoughts?

Instead of getting the Sunday blues tonight, I've decided to end the week with gratitude and positive vibes for more inspiring days ahead.
