BE INSPIRED!

A few years ago, Normand Charlette started a program he calls Be Inspired! Members may interpret one of his photos in the medium of your choice. When Norm displays his photos in a show, he will display a photo of your work with your contact information alongside his matching photo.

Emilie Beckwith's watercolor interpretation of Norm's The Portland Headlight in South Portland, Maine. Norm wrote that the photo was "one of those dreary overcast days along the rugged coast that mutes the color of the lighthouse buildings and gives a grayish-blue hue to the water and sky. Emilie has livened up the colors."

Emilie Beckwith's watercolor interpretation of Norm's At First Light.  Norm wrote: "The second photo captures the appearance change due to the low level sunlight peeking from behind a cloud bank. Every trip to the lighthouse has provided a different appearance."

Emilie Beckwith's watercolor interpretation of Norm's Tic Tac Toe Barn.  Norm explains: "I saw the O tire blocking the X horizontal win. I also saw X was cheating with an extra turn which will result in a vertical win. Emilie has creatively colorized the scene--and it still looks like X wins by cheating. You just can't trust those barn doors!"
