What inspires you? If you are an artist, who or what influences your artwork? How often do you feed the well? What type of objects do you collect or find joy in? As we go into the weekend think about those questions and go out and grab hold of some inspiration.
Like most artists I find my inspiration in a wide variety of areas. Here is a partial list of things in the world that light me up and inspire me to create: dusty old ephemera, broken or rusty machines, shiny new gadgets, packaging ...any kind of packaging, books, rain, school supplies, music, children's toys, signs, old album covers, photography, dogs, cats, handbags, friends, birds, new cities, paper, brand new art supplies, youth, the color green, old books, Elvis impersonators, magazines, power tools, garage sales.
