A favorite question of non artists to ask of artists (and understandably so) is "Where do you find your inspiration?" Well, here is a really good visual answer to that question. I often say that I am inspired by colors and color combinations. Below is a lovely example of just that...
People are always curious about inspiration. I took these picture in my garden of things that I find beautiful because pretty things inspire me- Rich color variations, organic beauty, interesting shapes... Take a look at the way the colors shift in the mint leaves- the transition from bright spring green to the dark forest green is just mouth watering. The delicacy of the poppy petals contrasts with the sturdy seed pod while the lovely salmon color is an unexpected match with the black half moons that make up the bottom of the petal. Amazing isn't it?
Another favorite way to find inspiration is through fellow artists. One such artist Sarah brundage of ThistleDowns wool designs tagged me and asked me to answer 6 questions and then tag 5 more artists- how fun! I'll show you the original 6 but I'm going to make up new ones just for fun...
The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
