Celebrating the Artists Who Have Inspired me as a Blogger......Tara Dillard


I met Tara Dillard a couple of years ago at our friend Nancy's birthday party and then later at another gathering......we got to talking about our art- my paintings and her design work; she is the most amazing landscape designer you could ever hope to meet!  And she started telling me about her blog, Landscape Design and how much she enjoyed blogging.....well I got curious, as an artist, I'm a pretty solitary sort and the idea of "meeting" other artists was intriguing to say the least!  Like many new "what-if" ideas, my mind kept returning to the idea of making my own blog.  and next thing I knew, I'd started "Dragonfly Design Studios"!  Actually, I did a feature on Tara for my Curiouser and Curiouser series, if you want to read more about her amazing stylings.....and you should definitely visit her beautiful blog- it is RICH with ideas!  So, here I am, a year later still blogging and still LOVING it- thanks Tara for the inspiration!
Don't forget to enter my giveaway- the link is at the top of this post and please come back tomorrow to see my next featured artists- my good friends at Inspiration Avenue!
Cheers,
Stephanie

YOU inspire me. Met your ART before I met you & learned there was more to your painting.

There's your gardening, cooking, writing & somehow the magic of being a matriarch at the same time.

Ha, can't wait to discover more.

Thank you for your kind words.

Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
