What Inspires Me?
That is the question I've been pondering all day. I thought about it while I was in the shower this morning, while I waited for the technician at the auto shop (the car's been on the fritz) and while I made bean soup for dinner. All day I kept coming up with the same answer...everything and anything has the potential to inspire me. Which is true, you never really know where inspiration will come from until it shows up. Right?
But, I think I'm meant to come up with something more specific. So I decided to look at the inspiration for the artwork that has been tugging at me. Why do I want to make those particular pieces of artwork? What do they look like in my head?
