Palette of the Desert

When we have a free moment at the same time and it isn't too hot, my husband and I enjoy exploring the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. The name is slightly confusing because it isn't a museum in the sense of a museum one expects when visiting an art museum or history museum. It is much more like the botanical gardens...desert style. However, when you look up "museum" in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the definition states the following: an institution devoted to the procurement, care, study, and display of objects of lasting interest or value; also : a place where objects are exhibited. So maybe "museum" DOES make sense.... Regardless of the name, we enjoy going. There's inspiration around every corner!




There are well over 300 species of hummingbirds, all native to the Americas. The vast majority live in the tropics, where flowers abound year-round. Only a handful of hummingbird species reach the United States, and Southern Arizona is home to more than a dozen of them, which include a family of birds that are the smallest in the world.

This has inspired me to create. I don't know what I'll be creating but I will create something inspired by this hummingbird's nest.
Vibrant colors and the most intricate of lines.
