|How is an idea born? For you, what is inspiration?
Most of my ideas come from designs that I imagine. Whether I want to use a certain type of bead, or create a piece that represents something, I usually see a rough idea of the finished piece that I hope to create. Often, what I end up making is completely different from my original idea, but it's that first whisper of inspiration that sparks the need to create something with a certain color, texture or image.
I have no inspiration. I draw a head, and then give it a dog body. That's it.
I find inspiration in other artists' work, including Georgia O'Keefe, Frida Kahlo and friends of mine. I also find inspiration in nature, family, conversation, and from other people's passion.
Sometimes people give me ideas, ask me to do something or give me a challenge. I find inspiration all around me my life is full of artistic opportunities. The air I breath the sun coming up the color of the night sky, the clouds over the Olympic mountain range and everything I can see between them and my living room window. My world over flows with inspiration.
My ideas are born of my childhood fantasies and paranoia. As a youngster and even in my teens I was quite a timid individual and wasn't very confident in expressing these feelings. It's all different now. I've become such a cocky little fucker. Whenever I am out and see or hear curious people or objects, all these memories come flooding back to me and I get this urge to respond.
The imagination of the imagination!
Some of my ideas are born when I sleep - as a bright dream with it's own story, imagery, characters and so on. Sometimes the idea comes from the nature. It gives you millions of shape combinations. It's hard to think out something completely new, but my methods work in most cases.
an idea is born from a blank page. my inspiration is everything around me and everything that isnt too!
An idea is born by holding a piece of fabric, discovering a vintage piece of lace. Imagination is my inspiration!
Inspiration can be from anything, anywhere, any time. For me it comes as a sudden spark which makes me feel a bout of passion to create something immediately. It could be from others' artworks, music, photographs, the weather, or just simple daily observations such as seeing how opulent sunshine filters through a peeled orange. They make me feel as though I just need to put it down and create something out of it.
Other great art
Ideas for new pieces come in many forms. I may see a piece of gnarled Cottonwood bark for instance, and see in my mind and chimney shape, and carve according to the nature of the piece of wood. Since most of my wood is found and not store bought, this gives me more inspiration I feel, as it is still in a form that has not yet been touched or refined. With other aspects of my art, it may be more straight forward, Such as taking a picture of an animal at the zoo, then drawing it out on a round maple disk and burning in the details. In that instance I let what I see in the photograph define more or less what I am doing.
Everything is inspiration, for everything is art and full of ideas. You just have to have the right perspective to see it. Even the most mundane things around may inspire the next masterpiece. Personally though, I get my best inspiration from animals. With 23 cats (all living in thier own quarters for utmost comfort) and many farm animals, there's plenty to see and much to get inspired by. My painting usually come from photo references I take of my animals and land.
when i was drawing, i just take up my pencil and star drawing curve lines then an idea pop up in my mind.
inspiration comes from everywhere. my idea comes from simplicity cause i like something simple.
