Humming Along

Landscapes 14 - Humming Along

Musings of the Artists Mind

She’s off for a casual stroll, humming a happy tune to herself as she goes. Get close, can you hear her tune? She’s an expression of happiness, filled with happy thoughts and/or loving the simple beauty of this  moment in time. We have much to learn from this happy soul. Stop and breath in the moment, let go and walk with a skip in your step, dance like you just don’t care. The universe will love you more for the energy you are putting forth.

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 ArtOR Phaidon’s “The Art BookBoth 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.
