And... who needs inspiration? by Hilda Kilpatrick-Freyre

It is not a matter of being inspired, it is just a matter of standing in front of my easel what makes me want to paint!

Once I have all the oils, brushes, and canvas ready to start, and when I put my old blue apron on, there is nothing that would me stop from creating something. It doesn’t have to be a masterpiece, it just has to be what I feel in the moment, what makes my heart jump with excitement and anticipation.

Morning Light by Hilda Kilpatrick-Freyre

Every morning, the first thing I do is check how the light is showing through the beautiful French doors of this 1920’s house.  It makes me happy to see how the sun reflects on the glass prism, the dispersive prism breaks the light up into the beautiful colors of the rainbow and makes the living room an enchanted place. I have loved color since I was a child, that’s probably the reason I love experimenting with colors on my palette and transferring to my canvas.  After all these years, I am still surprised by the beautiful colors of a finished painting!
