When you’re in the muck you can only see muck. If you somehow manage to float above it, you still see the muck but you see it from a different perspective. And you see other things too. That’s the consolation of philosophy.

David Cronenberg

I remember as a kid having a balloon and accidentally letting the string go and watching it just float off and into the sky until it disappeared. And there’s something about that, even, that feels very much like what life is, you know, that it’s fleeting, and it’s temporal.

Pete Docter

It’s funny where inspiration comes from.  I was at a concert the other day and the band had set up the stage with various lamps. One lamp looked like a globe or orb and I couldn’t stop looking at it. They had set their water bottle in front of it and it almost looked like a figure holding a glowing orb above their head.  It made me think of my warrior of the light and I was inspired to paint this one.  I don’t know if I will go on to paint another but my husband quickly painted out “see it is good for you to go out!” (hermit that I am).

It is so important as an artists to be open for inspiration to make an appearance.  My mantra is always ‘inspiration finds us when we are working’ and this is true.  If we aren’t coming to the page/canvas on a regular basis, it makes it hard to actually manifest our inspiration BUT staring at the page/canvas day in and day out is NOT going to make that happen. Once again, as in most things in life, it is finding that perfect balance that is vital.

“I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars.”
