When an artist sees something that inspires
a piece of artwork or an illustration,
that "something" or "someone" becomes the artist's muse.
posted this image of her darling pug, Alfred,
and her pretty new coral x-bench from Target
(of which I'm now lusting!).
Katie Armour's Instagram of Alfred and the Coral X-Bench
Little did Alfred know when he awoke that day
that he would become a muse
for a quick watercolor study
(photos below are all i-phone snaps as I worked)
Oh, Alfred, you're oh-so-charming ...
and if you're looking for a girl to hang with,
I know a chic one named Lily!
A note on the Target Threshold X-Bench:
I couldn't find it on line,
so it must be available only in stores right now ...
I did find this image, however ...
apparently Target has a whole Coral Collection ...
such a spring happy color ...
Speaking of home decor and Target,
this was my latest purchase this weekend
for my own home, which I'm decorating
in a glamorous beach house style
(since it's on the water) ...
It's the Nate Berkus Tortoise Shell in a creamy white!
The living room is being painted now, and can't wait
to add it to the mix!
Happy Monday, everyone!
Have a fabulous week and I'll see you Wednesday!
