Musings of the Artists Mind
Built simultaneously as Water Goddess, but with a different surface decoration. This one has an engine & stain finish that gives it a more antique finish. I wanted it to give the impression that it might have been found buried in the ruins of an ancient archeological site, and ancient object of worship, a Goddess of anthropological significance. Every time I look at it the story of who it might have been changes, but she always remains a Goddess. What story does she tell you?

What inspires an artist?
“All they see” is the first and most literal answer.
For me, that is literally hundreds of gallery & museum exhibits, thousands of books, and tens of thousands of images online.
Books that Inspired and Influenced my Experimentation:
When asked where to start a book collections, I almost always recommend these art bibles: Janson’s “History of Art” OR Phaidon’s “The Art Book” Both give a nice overview with good pictures. Once you’ve discovered what you are attracted to there most, you can then dig deeper into that area.
These are perhaps the most accessible influences, but the truth is that my influences run deep through thousands of books and works I’ve seen & read. If you have the time, you are free to visit my GoodReads library to see a fraction of the books I’ve read. These are the ones I remember, that is. Or you can visit the ever growing collection on my Pinterest account.
