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.

God is really only another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephant and the cat. He has no real style, He just goes on trying other things.

 

I can really relate to this right now.  Just trying new things. Staying inspired. Working through it.  Not sure where it is going but must keep making marks.

Just a whisper of her remains…

That is how I feel when I look at old photographs of people from another era.  I try to listen to the subject. I try to hear the story within the image.

It is the same when I begin a painting. I always ask the subject in the  painting to tell me their story.

Most are only too eager to be heard.
