Cobalt teal blue works its magic once more, whispering in the skies as the inferno below scorches the land.
Inspiration: sparks from just an ember
Its simple really.
If you think about it.
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.
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.
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:
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….
