Cobalt teal blue works its magic once more, whispering in the skies as the inferno below scorches the land.

Watercolor Inferno, from an ember

 

Inspiration: sparks from just an ember

Its simple really.

Being inspired.

 

If you think about it.

 

 

 

 

Burning Drive

How would I explain this term, “inspiration?”

To be inspired  –  filled with a burning drive to express the message compelling me to do so.

 

 

Using moods, colors, events, strolls, people and ideas to create the image.

Then, Infusing each art movement and action with thoughtfull intent and purpose.

 

Stopping.

Way before you begin to imagine being even close,  to done.

Perhaps, about 20 brushstrokes …. before you think you are finished.

 

Yes, still Half done.

 

 

what…?

Its not going anywhere,  is it?

 

 

 

Let go.   Move on.  Return later.

Resolutions, fixing, finishing…. all can be more successful… done later with a fresh, unfrustrated eye and mind.

 

 

Art Ideas that Inspired:

fluidity

powerful

peace

balance

discipline

awareness

economy of movement

 

 

 

 

Ideas to Share

  • Build … an intensity of connectedness between the subject and myself   (the artist)
  • Create…. a strong,  multilayered bridge of depth  – shallowness, defeats inspiration
  • Study ….. Tony Smibert   watercolors  & acrylic paintings –  swift clarity, certainty of intent
  • Listen ….. Marconi Union  ‘Weightless’    a calm, zen,  musical piece lovely to listen to in the studio sipping some jasmine tea….
