The other day driving back to Los Angeles from Arcadia, I saw peacocks. I thought I was crazy and after taking some sad iPhone pictures (the quality is horrible) of these beautiful creatures, I had to find out why these peacocks were there. Apparently these peacocks are from the nearby Arcadia Arboretum (wow). Amazing. The last place I saw peacocks was in a zoo, somewhere in Australia….
When visiting a friend or when waiting for your family and friends to visit, sometimes the front door isn’t always open. However, have you noticed that someone’s front door can mean a lot? I remember that my mom was designing our new front door to give the entire community a glimpse of what the house inside may be like — perhaps a snippet of the happiness that is within those doors. Regardless, these are some beautiful doors that I have seen and I have to say, having a stained glass pantone door seems ethereal.
My favorite drawing technique (aside from pastels) is watercolor. It seems easy but is actually quite difficult. I love how you can utilize water and color to create a picture that seems almost fading. I also love layering the colors, it’s always so beautiful.
I remember seeing a list on Eatocracy from CNN of the top 50 restaurants in the world. At that time I also wanted to join a Pinterest contest and ended up looking for visuals of all the foods that were presented in these various restaurants. I’ve always been interested in trying new restaurants and all, but I did not realize how beautiful the arrangement of these courses were! I hope someday to enjoy these courses in real life.
