May 1, 2008

It would be wrong not to mention the inspiration that spring brings to the artist. Over time artists have used nature as inspiration. Think Monet, Kahlo or O'Keeffe and you won't have any doubt of that statement having validity. Today though I did not paint, I was full of inspirational ideas. A doggie playdate with a friend got me designing a t-shirt, a walk in the woods inspired a children's book and a beautiful though chilly and cloudy day gave me opportunity to grab my camera and record some of my day. As an artist it is important not to be an artist just when I'm in my studio in front of my easel. As the spring unfolds I wonder how many wonderful art will be created.
