People often ask what inspires an artist to paint what they do and for me the answer is almost everything!
Though I would say nature inspires me the most and of course other artists. Old and rusty things also inspire me. Here I give you a few photos I took of things that have given birth to some new paintings, though you may or may not recognize how they end up being rendered. Rocks, a full moon at 5 in the AM, my bed with just a hint of sunlight coming in and of course bird tracks, I would say they belong to a raven. I have 2 new paintings done, but I want to get the third finished and then I will set up my light cube and take some photos for you. I am off to hike and paint, what I call a PERFECT day!
Happy Saturday! XOXO

Intriguing images. I looked at them for a long time.

good to get inspiration from nature , it is an endless source ♥
You find the good, the beautiful and the true everywhere you look. Thank you for sharing your gift!
So true about what inspires an artist. It would be easier to answer the question "what DOESN'T inspire you?" ha ha
Can't wait to see the new paintings...
I love that top photo Annie. Well, you know me, I love looking details in the earth- rock, stone, mud, sky... and then wondering how I can get similar textures & colors in my glazes :)
The earth inspires!
I love to see what inspires you, Annie! I love the cracked rocks, the bird tracks, the moon, the shaft of sunlight. Really looking forward to seeing what you've been working on!
