Picasso once said something to the effect, there's painting and then there's everything else. Sometimes I sit and stare at a painting for days, but as soon as I touch the canvas with my brush a different world opens up. Inspiration comes in many forms: travel, a book, meditation, sleep or food depriation, a good conversation with a friend, going to a museum, making love, walking in nature, a dream. The process however and being in the sudio is what gives me the most ethusiasism, or in latin 'ethos', to be with God. We all as artists make time to do our art because that is who we are. What Inspires you?
