I'm bubbling over with excitement!
Seth Apter, from The Altered Page, posted a beautiful video, titled Labuet- Paint a Song - about, as he says, "Bursts of colors. Bursts of birds. Bursts of words. And bursts of so much more." You can see the video here. It's a "must super see!" In front of my house, I saw a streaming line of water from the non stop rain we've been having. The first thing I thought of was the captivating streaming ink line from the video.
The rushing movement caught my eye as well as the intricate geometric patterns and sparkling reflections of light.
Delicately submerged just beneath the surface,
I glimpsed some leaves- a gorgeous site!
In a previous post, Seth showed us his vibrant art filled Inspiration Boards that you can see here. I thought about having a board of my own as I looked at the boards of the talented artists which Seth included in his post. It was great to see all of the boards and inspiration shelves, walls, and spaces shown, but I didn't feel the emotion of being "inspired". I concluded that it was because the boards were sights that touched the hearts of the artists - and "spoke to them". I was left with the question, could I have an inspiration board or wall to inspire me too? The answer was -not exactly... but- I was inspired to photograph some of my pictures and nick knacks that I love. But the inspiration came from Seth's words.
I realized that my inspiration comes from two places: people - through their thoughts, words, acts and energy, and from nature. There is nothing comparable to the sunrise, sunset, our trees, the sky, our land and all that grows on it, the air we breathe, rainbows and now, one of my favorites - walking in misty air -feeling the tiny raindrops of water touch my skin- surrounding me with a halo of softness that is just unmatchable!
Inspiration is such a personal emotion. No matter where or from whom it comes to you - nourish and appreciate the amazing strength and power it has on our creativity, artistic expression and within and throughout our daily lives.
Enjoy every moment!
