Working outside vs. Working at home

Working form home can be very isolating. And for those of us in the creative realm, sitting at home with only your computer for company can cripple our creativity. To remedy that situation, I try to work outside the home at least 2 times per week. Last week I set up my office on a bridge overlooking the Loxahatchee river. [caption id="attachment_931" align="aligncenter" width="400" caption="The view from my office"][/caption] I was joined by a few out other lovers of the great outdoors.(Note to self. Add paddle board to bucket list) [caption id="attachment_932" align="aligncenter" width="400" caption="I need to try this..."][/caption] While I was there, I decided to do a photo shoot of some of the pillow designs that I have been working on - after all, these designs were inspired by one of my many out door work excursions. [caption id="attachment_933" align="aligncenter" width="400" caption="Don't feed the turtles"][/caption] These pillows feature a girl and a boy checking out the turtles as they hatched. Read more about them here. [caption id="attachment_934" align="aligncenter" width="400" caption="Hello"][/caption] The girl is a bit more curious. [caption id="attachment_935" align="aligncenter" width="400" caption="How about a hug?"][/caption] The pillows below are from my new line of pillows - I call them Reggae Chic. The print was inspired by a trip to Jamaica. [caption id="attachment_936" align="aligncenter" width="400" caption="The Sun and the Sea"][/caption] I was hanging out in some 'off the beaten path' areas and I took some random photos. I did not want to create a typical photo pillow I wanted to create a print derived from a photo. [caption id="attachment_937" align="aligncenter" width="400" caption="Red, Green, Yellow"][/caption] If you look closely you may recognize the sun and the sea - but that's all the hint I am going to give you:) How do you connect with the outside world?
