Inspiration seems like it is around every corner...all the time. I am not bragging. Maybe what qualifies for inspiration for me is a little different than what qualifies for others. Almost anything can spark thoughts of trying different techniques, materials, subjects, points of view, color choices, series of paintings, and so on.
Regardless of what others call inspiration, I will define it here without really thinking about what it really is. Inspiration: An openess to different thoughts, ideas, and explorations that are acted on based on a need to create and created because of the power of the influence observed or contemplated by the creator.
