I gather inspiration and possibilities by striving to learn more about all aspects of my chosen vocation: Painting. Reading books, blogs, watching videos, visiting, museums, practicing and experimenting with my craft (or those of others) are the part of my process akin to collecting firewood. What gives that fuel direction I get from the people around me. A conversation with a close friend, relative, aquaintence or often a chance encounter with a random stranger will produce the spark. People are one of my favorite subjects but even when my work isn’t of a human being it is a safe bet it was inspired by one. Interacting with people ignites my creative fires, and a new collection is born.
