As an artist I have found that inspiration comes from the very world that I live in. The people, the places and the things that co-exist are a constant source of inspiration.
Looking out onto a landscape I see patterns, textures, colors, and areas of luminosity. My attention is often diverted to a person because of the way the light sculpts the soft curves of a face or a textured object that has strong shadows defining it’s feel. Light and the shadows it creates, define the depth of our physical world.
Like the Impressionists I want to see the moment, even bask in it so that I can live my life one moment at a time. At the end of the day we are left with very few moments in which we are truly present, absorbing everything with all of our senses and appreciating the world around us. Creating a piece of art, no matter what the medium, helps me be present with the subject and the moment.
Life is short, but the moments can be long if we decide to focus and relish each one.
