|How is an idea born? For you, what is inspiration?
I see things very directly.I only select the form and color which really speak to me.Painting is an attitude about life.Painting is a process of learinig.Painting is my life and anything could be part of life.
seeing a movie, picture, illustration or even in a dream will sometimes spawn a feeling inside. creating an image in my head. i try to birth the image into this world with the clay.
ITS NOT ABOUT IDEAS .ITS NOT ABOUT INSPIRATIONS.
IT ONLY OBSESSION AND SECRET DESIRES FOR ME,FOR MY LIFE,FOR MY MIND,FOR MY PERSONALITY
|I think of something I want a picture of, like dinosaurs or a character from my stories. I get ideas from my stories all the time. Or, and this is very common, I just see something I'd like to draw. Maybe it's just sitting still like my cat does sometimes.
I get ideas for what I want to draw that I have trouble drawing yet and try them again and again till I get them the way I want them.
Inspiration sometimes just comes from looking at the materials. When I lay out my oil pastels in chromatic order that can give me an idea -- wow there are a lot of greens, maybe I want to do a landscape. Or cool, that brown looks like that guy's cheek. That other brown, it's the color my cat's fur turns when it goes from black to beige. Each stick will give me ideas.
I am in the habit of getting ideas. I have a creative personality and I'm open to them. I bother to jot them or write about them. When you do that, more and more ideas will come to you. People who have trouble getting ideas always have the habit of rejecting them as stupid or cliche every time they think of one.
There is no cliche that didn't come from a classic. A classic is a cliche done well, a cliche is a classic done badly. If you like little churches in the snow in New England with robins on the branches, then DO that! Yours will be different. Yours will become wonderful the more often you paint them, till you become someone with a reputation the size of Thomas Kinkaid and people contact you to illustrate books.
Be you. Draw the things you love as pictures. That will become the best source of ideas all the time, and you'll see more beautiful things in life too the more you draw them. If you draw everything you like, the world gets more attractive and things that were ugly start turning into cool things to paint. A rusty piece of garbage dead machinery starts looking like a cool thing to paint in a field and then you're up there with all the fine artists doing paintings of rusty machinery to put in galleries. The reason is that it's real tricky getting that paint flaking off and the spread of the rust and the interesting shapes of deformed metal.
Play with your supplies like you're a kid. The more often you let yourself play, the easier it is to be creative and follow artistic impulses. There is no wrong impulse when it comes to what you can do with art supplies, you're only murdering a piece of paper. There is no terrible risk to failure. You wind up with something that could become good art if it's ripped up and stuck back into a collage you do years later. So enjoy that freedom and accept it and you will find inspiration in every thing you naturally like and enjoy.
Why not do paintings of chocolate bars and ice cream sundaes? Some people do! I mean it -- anything you like, anything at all.
Ideas very often spring from something I've read. The danger of that is that the work can risk ending up as a sterile kind of illustration, its boundaries and frame of reference set in stone even before the paint starts going on the canvas. More recently I find myself trawling through thousands of images online and in books, until something clicks, until something is suggested. 'Inspiration' means little to me - work is the only process that ever makes anything happen.
Life, emotions, and stories are my inspiration!
Ideas come from experiencing nature in remote places. Inspiration is the vibratory resonance of these.
the idea borns from the work itself, from the continuation. Inspiration is an idea.
while working the process reveal the ideas. (I believe).
Life. The miracle that I'm alive is my biggest inspiration. The feeling, that I live and I breathe...
a simple glance is enough. sometimes you can look for it, sometimes it jumps out at you. sometimes whilst thinking of something entirely different at work something clicks...
It's a great thing to be born.
Noble Lady Mother Terressa and my Mother are my inspiration.
With working and thinking…
Most really good ideas come when I least expect it. Usually it will be something I have wanted an aswer for but I'm not hurting myself trying to find it. Some times it pops up in a dream, when I'm relaxing in the sun, or having a bath.
I meditate to an inner energy that I believe is the power of Life. If I just focus on this energy I receive all sorts of truths.
