Inspiration can often be found in the most unlikely of places...as long as you are open to the possibility. But sometimes the source of inspiration is as plain as the nose on your face...or the blog on your computer. I am often inspired by the words and images posted on art blogs and websites. For example Chris from Prism Trail fills her sidebar with constantly changing, individual links that inspire her at any one moment in time.
This in turn has inspired me to add a section to my sidebar which I am calling, fittingly enough, Inspiration Station. In it, I will post a link to the blog post, website, artist, artwork, podcast, book, video (well, you get the idea) that is inspiring me in the moment. It will be updated as frequently or as infrequently as I find new inspiration. So you are invited to visit often and click on the link for your own shot of creative inspiration. And speaking of...
Pasticcio Quartz - the Celebrate Spring issue - is now hot off the presses. 52 pages packed with creativity. Artwork, techniques, interviews, book reviews, must-visit websites, and so much more. This is issue #6 from the team of Sarah Fishburn and Angela Cartwright. Click here for more information and to purchase.
Kelly Moore, an artist who creates and sells his work in the flea market on the Tesuque reservation in New Mexico, has just released a book entitled Eruption. This is a 120 page book packed with his unique artistic stylings. Click here to preview and order a copy. You can read more about Kelly in an earlier post here or go directly to his website here. But be warned...once you enter the site, you may never find your way out! Kelly is an amazing man and his book offers a glimpse into his raw style of art.
