Late Night Inspiration

Inspiration can come at the strangest time. Last night at 2 am I woke up and had to draw out what popped in my head. This hand painted letter takes me back to a simpler time when people took the time to write to someone who may reside in a hotel. I know that Coco Channel lived at the Ritz Hotel in Paris and now there is a suite named after her. Can you imagine how inspiring that room would be. Today I had fun painting this "Letter of Love" and sort of winged it as I went along.

I am in love with old letters and labels, and signs and this was inspired by some I have seen.

Here is a close up of the stamp I hand painted and added on top of the canvas.

On the back I added a little wax seal and signed it with love.
I love a day of just painting and playing around....don't you?
