Where do you go for good ideas?
As an artist I am often asked this question.
It's a good question and I have lots of answers for ideas.
Many of my ideas for paintings come from my own life.
I have often said,
"If you have left an impression on my life there's a good chance you will find yourself in one of my paintings".
Aside from that my sources are many.
Now that I'm connected to the Internet I find it fun to surf around and find new works of art.
Since my artwork is considered "Outsider" art. I find inspirations on YouTube's "how to paint", a very good source of information.
Just as a writer is told to write about the things he knows about, I too think that a artist will paint the things they are interested in.
When I first started to paint, I painted landscapes, tress, streams....etc. Nothing that really interested me. But I was told, and to some degree believed that if I wanted to sell I had to paint landscapes.
Well, surprise, surprise, I have found conceptual painting far more interesting, and lucrative.
Good ideas come to you when you are curious and aware of your surrounding. They come when you least except them and they come by sharing thoughts and ideas with others.
It feels so good to be hiking. I had said that this year was going to be the year I hiked.
And I have. Maybe not as much as I wanted to because of the weather, but hiking I have.
This is a hike up to Island Lake in the Ruby MT, in Nevada.
I went with my son Matt and his son Carter.
In the middle of July we were so surprised to find all these flowers.
Fields of flowers.
Look at this little bee, his legs are weighed down by pollen. He can't even fly. But that doesn't keep him from trying.
Healing Cards, Caroline Myss and Peter Occhiogrosso
My Healing card today is:
Everything lost is found again; everything hurt is healed again.
I went for my results of this years x rays on my back.
Good news/ bad news.
My neck is improving, however, after all the adjustment, walking, yoga and swimming.
My back disc is the same. Not better, not worse, just the same. But it is a thousand times better than 3 years ago. Healing cards says, This truth has the power to retrieve a part of your spirit from the past. It's a mantra that's strong enough to overcome past injuries. This will be your constant thought today.
So, it's back to the exercise routine.......
Two colonies of bees live on top of the Paris Opera and are maintained by a retired props man. The honey is sold at the Opera's gift shop and has a delicate, spicy flavor. If you want to pick up a new skill such as apiculture (beekeeping), sign up for classes in the Jardin du Luxembourg.
Sweet, sign up for bee keeping classes. I have heard that if you buy honey in the area of where you live you and eat it regularly you will not have allergies.
The Paris Opera House
This is the most beautiful place. I would definitely put this on my tour list.
This abstract painting is the center of my travel wall. Now I'm not sure which wall is my travel wall according to feng shui, but I say any wall that you can see it and plan for travel has to be a good wall.
