My Muses and a Thank You!

Without inspirations, I wouldn't be able to do my work. I need visuals! They may change after a while, but I am usually drawn to similar things. Here are a few of my current muses.

A classically shaped plaster urn

Beautiful patinas and unique color combinations

Grottesca designs and gilding 

Sgraffito on buildings, such as this in Florence

Fine design

What are some of your muses?

I invite you to check out Regina Garay's generous blog post today over at Fauxology where she covers the groin vault ceilings that I painted. She will be reporting on groin ceilings all week- yummy! Thanks so much, Regina!



  1. My pleasure, Ann! You have inspired beautiful comments as well. BTW, I love all your inspirations -- where is that grottesca ceiling from? It's delicious!

  2. Merci, Regina.
