It’s  A Little Chilly Out

Landscapes 14 - It's a little chilly out

Musings of the Artists Mind

Why did she leave the house without a scarf or proper jacket? What pushed her out into this chilly day? Why did she need to walk it off? Sometimes creating the backstory is as much fun as what we see on the canvas. Please share you story of this figure with us. 

Is she simply complaining to herself, to a fellow walker, or to you the viewer? Or, is she running to or from some emotional event?  What do you see? 

Pleeeease! I’d help you out Design your world with The Artist’s Stuff: Prints, Fashion, and uniquely awesome Decor ideas!

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.
