I want to do something real different this week for #FF – I’ve recently felt the itch to start painting again. It’s been a while, I’ve taken all my oils out, I’ve inventoried what I’ve got, I’ve ordered some new paints to try. It’s going to happen. I’ve also found a world of inspiration on Instagram – wonderful painters, leaning toward the abstract, that I wanted to share with you all today.


I can’t get enough of all 5 of these feeds and have been creeping on these ladies all week.



Carrie Shyrock – Carrie’s feed is full of wonderful little moleskine paintings of big skies and open plains.

Deeann Rieves – Really lovely giant mixed media abstracts. I kind of want to climb inside these.

  1. I love this!! I just got my watercolours out again funnily enough – I’ve been using water brushes which are the most amazing things. I haven’t used oils since college though, I miss them too, I always loved using them – enjoy :)
