Lately, I've been very inspired to paint. I haven't done any painting, per se; but I've been THINKING a lot about painting.
I keep seeing things that make me say, "I've got to paint that!" Some recent photos of my 16-month-old twin granddaughters at the apple orchard were absolutely meant to be captured on canvas. I've got to get myself motivated, get out to Michael's and purchase some much-needed new brushes and other supplies, and get to it.
But here's the problem: there is so much beauty everywhere, and so much of what I see inspires me, that in the end, I just get overwhelmed and decide to paint...nothing.
Recently, we were at the University of Notre Dame and visited the breathtakingly beautiful Basilica of the Sacred Heart that is located on campus. Here is the painted ceiling of the Mary Chapel in the back.
(If I ever actually decide to paint angels and saints on my dining room ceiling, I will most definitely have to blog about that!)
