|How is an idea born? For you, what is inspiration?
Inspiration is the light that comes from within the Self. An idea is born through meditating and observing.
Ideas often begin at a conceptual level, maybe a story or event often with a timeless quality, from this drawings and play lead me to a place where an imaage or object can be made manifest.
Many things inspire me - people, landscape, everything I see around me, art of other artists , CHinese art, Chinese idioms etc.
An idea is born from imagination, or your muse if you have one. Sometimes it's just an impulse, sometimes it's your experiences in life, like struggles, or perhaps another piece of work.
every idea is born trough a point, on the inside, also visible by others. If you don't materialise it somebody else will. Inspiration? Some kind of relevation, of spark, wich implies a great quantity of love power that is fire that lightens up the inner darknes so you can see...
Thinking about dogs is my favorite pass time and obsession. I see a print with a cute dog and want to create that dog. People send me pictures of their dogs and I desire to make it just as I see it. Interesting fur or fiber gives me a idea on how I can use it to make a certain breed of dog. My own dogs inspire me daily by the interesting things they do and the poses they get themselves in. I want to make that pose when I see it.
Everything I see is Inspiration!!..it can be as simple as a color of a tea towel...a quilt, flowers in the garden..anything.
I love to study old things, kitchen items....furniture, quilts, old houses, carriages, buildings. My hubby and I enjoy stopping in at museums, forts, old towns and old mansions. Seeing the work of others....and our pioneers always inspires me!!
Last but certainly not least ....my husband and children inspire me...with their happy smiles, ideas and support.
For myself, it usually has to do with events in my life.
Since I was a very young girl, I always knew I had a special talent and quite an imagination. I was always drawing, tinkering with things, and rearranging furniture.
Each project is always different from the last. Having a diploma in Interior Decorating gives me an edge over my competition. I first meet with my client on location so I can view the space where the mural or faux project is to be painted. I ask my client several questions. I have a way of bringing my client's ideas to life by "getting into" their heads so to speak. After my meeting, I return to my office and conduct extensive research by using the internet, books and magazines to find pictures of characters and landscapes, and search archives to study how places looked years ago, then draw on my imagination to bring the projects to life.
when someone, who really wants to know, askes me a question.
while listening to their silent guts. It happens sometimes and that is really great.
I do that too while looking around, I want to know what things mean to me.
I am someone who has a hard time turning off my brain. I spend a lot of time daydreaming and I always have new ideas and eventually one will have more staying power and I'll give it a try.
dreams and nature
A brilliant idea is born from a careful observation and creativity. Inspiration comes from unique creativity.
It always begins with some odd remark or moment I observe. I am inspired by the unintentional.
I never know how or where. If I were to focus my attention in a particular "direction" looking for it, so much would pass by unnoticed.
