Examples of Marie’s Inspiration

“Layers of color, whether the ocean’s blues, the desert wind’s energy, the sunrise/sunset or the strata of a Chaparral foothill, intrigue me, and create a desire to translate them into my chosen media.” Marie Cole

This photo shows the layers of evening colors that were the inspiration for this basket. “Dusk”


Another example is her “Almost Autumn”.

Here is an example of how a view from a window inspires her creativity once again. “Outside Window”

The inspiration here is Navajo country. From this image Marie created “Southwest Vista”.
