Inspiration Monday: Adriana Willsie

I connected with Adriana Willsie via Twitter some time ago. Many of her paintings are pet portraits - dogs, cats, the occasional bird - that she often posts on her blog when complete. I like the bright colors and paint textures she uses to give the feeling of fur and feathers.

On occasion, Adriana expands her color pallet beyond fur and feathers to paint beautiful landscapes and still-lifes.

I'm inspired by Adriana's simple subjects that are made quite complex by the depth of color and texture of the paint.
