Concentrating on a canvas or a piece of paper and breathing life into it helps me relax. Painting is therapeutic. The best thing about it is that there isn’t a right or wrong way to express myself. It’s entirely up to me to decide whether or not changes need to be made. Here’s what painting has taught me:
They matter because all artists use them in so many different ways. They can be used to bring a piece together, lead the eye or to make the artwork look three dimensional amongst other things. After I finish my artwork I stand back and that is when the elements I used most stand out to me.
Quick, what’s the first thing you do when you see abstract artwork that speaks to you?
I picture it on a wall in my home! Sometimes I even frame it. Yeah, I have a bit of a wild imagination, I know. More often than not I have already figured out where I will hang it before placing it in my cart!
How’s it going? I have news to share with you all! I’ve finally found a site to sell my artwork on! As you know, I’ve been struggling to find a new platform to sell my artwork on and I have finally found it!
I’ve been thinking about things that give me inspiration and keep me creating.
As I thought about it these 11 things came to mind. And my thoughts became a poem as they sometimes do. Chill for a minute and take a read, you may just find out how I keep getting the inspiration to create!
I find inspiration in many different things:
Things that matter or…
things that don’t
things that cast interesting shadows
or no shadows at all
things I imagine and things that are real
Sounds even inspire me and so do smells
even things that stand still
they all hold inspiration.
Whether I look up at the sky
or down on the ground
I find inspiration
Because, there is inspiration everywhere.
That is why I create!
When inspiration is everywhere how can I not create? I have been building and designing still looking for new places to sell my artworks. New abstract artwork will be published soon. Now can you see why I love being creative?
The above image was originally a painting called Green Abstract. Yes, it was green before. Oh, let me know which colour way you like better too. I like the pink and blue much better than the green but, I’m interested to know your thoughts.
