It takes only moments to become completely and hopelessly distracted while seeking out inspiration. Whether utilizing the vast store of images I’ve saved to my computer over the years, or turning to the Google gods, one “quick look” can turn into hours. After a while, it’s no longer a matter of searching for, but absorbing all of the wonder that is before you…at least that’s how my inspiration wanderings tend to go.
I have folders upon folders, bookmarks aplenty, a host of sites, and more to turn to for sparks of creative juice, or just to ogle extensively as I imagine each movement or color that became a part of the piece I’m looking at. Both for my own drawing, painting, etc. as well as for my writing, I use visual art to stimulate my thoughts, to aspire to, to give my soul the much needed food it seeks.
I love art in all its many forms. My taste is eclectic and my preference in style or subject is often dependent on my mood, but I still soak up each new work I come across that imprints on my mind, heart, or soul and eagerly look forward to what I might find next.
I am also fortunate that the friends I keep often produce pieces that inspire me.
Friend or stranger doesn’t matter, I am incredibly thankful for all the breath taking works that inspire me and their wonderful creators.
What are some examples of what inspires you?
