It's been a while since an update so I thought I'd let you all in on some of my biggest sources of inspirations. To me there is almost nothing better than coming across a new artist whose aesthetic, approach, ideas, or story jive with my own and inspire me to create something. I feel the same way about travel - something that never ceases to fill my head with ideas. Here is just a sampling of images I keep in my "inspiration" folder.
All of that absorbed into my head, milled around a bit and combined with ideas that come from I don't know where, and then put down in paint makes this:
Piles in the Hallway, 16" x 20". Oil on canvas. 2011
I'd love to know what inspires you! How do you find new artists to love?
