Crazy days here in my studio. I have been working for several months on a number of pieces for the upcoming Pinellas Community Foundation’s “Festivale 50” event.
Creative Clay, PARC and The Arc Tampa Bay chose four community artists over the age of 60 who used art to answer the question: How does it feel to age?
Inspiration is the starting point for an artwork; it’s the match that lights your fire. I would like to suggest another use for Inspiration (with a capital ‘I’): as a learning tool.
What kind of environment gets your creative juices flowing? A quiet, orderly space? Soft music, nature sounds or perhaps heavy metal? Whatever your motivation, build your stage to inspire your work.
We tend to think that we “know,” at least generally speaking, what we are looking at. But are we really seeing what we are focused on?
