Spark of Artspiration...

My friend, Carolyn Dube, started a Mixed Media Newsletter a while back showcasing work from her Blog. In her newsletter she takes a small snippet from a piece of art that she has completed and inspires us to take it and let it inspire us to make a new piece of artwork. 

Here is Carolyn's Spark:

This time I took the Spark and enlarged it to letter size and printed it out. It is so colorful and fun that it reminded me to remember to enjoy life, have fun and see that something as little as color can put a big smile on your face. All I used in addition to Carolyn's piece was a black pen and a white pen.
Here is what I made with it:
