In the Artist's Way group, we've been asked to share what inspires us. I would have to say my first inspiration would be colors. All colors. I love colors and putting them together with different colors and combinations. And even as a little kid I had names for every different shade...it wasn't a "light bluish purple" it is "periwinkle". That would always bug people when they would be describing a color and I would say, "Oh, you mean___." lol!
Another is music...it always puts pictures in my mind, and I have to have it on while I'm "working", or my art just doesn't come out quite right. Like it's missing something. If the music is on, everything just flows.
And last, but certainly not least, is Frida Kahlo. I have been a HUGE fan for, what, 15-20 years, and I absolutely love the way she was just so able to put her self out there so freely and easily. Just looking at her work, I can feel the energy and power. What I wouldn't give for that kind of talent.
