Art for Inspiration: Girl in a Field by Ludwig Knaus

Girl in a Field, 1857
by Ludwig Knaus (1829 - 1910)

When we are children we seldom think of the future. This innocence leaves us free to enjoy ourselves as few adults can. The day we fret about the future is the day we leave our childhood behind.
Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind

Little things seem nothing, but they give peace, like those meadow flowers which individually seem odorless but all together perfume the air.
Georges Bernanos

How does the meadow flower its bloom unfold? Because the lovely little flower is free down to its root, and in that freedom bold.
William Wordsworth

Free Illustration for Garden and Nature Journals, Bookmarks, Gift Tags or Scrapbook Page Embellishments: Bird and Pink Rhododendrons VTC


Just as the bird sings or the butterfly soars,
because it is his natural characteristic, so the artist works.
Alma Gluck

Fabulously colourful bird illustration from an old Victorian trade card (VTC) in my collection. I am not sure if this brilliant fellow is a real bird or an imaginary one but I really admire how his green, purple and yellow feathers stand out so nicely against the showy pink rhododendrons in the background.

Art for Inspiration: Garden View with a Dog by Tomás Yepes

Garden View with a Dog, c1665
by Tomás Yepes (1595 – 1674)

All his life he tried to be a good person. Many times, however, he failed.
For after all, he was only human. He wasn't a dog.
Charles M. Schulz

Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day.
It is amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them.
John Grogan, Marley and Me: Life and Love With the World's Worst Dog

People leave imprints on our lives, shaping who we become in much the same way that a symbol is pressed into the page of a book to tell you who it comes from. Dogs, however, leave paw prints on our lives and our souls, which are as unique as fingerprints in every way.
Ashly Lorenzana
