11 Things That Inspire Me

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.
