As an artist, ideas and inspiration sometimes come when you least expect it. This morning I was out for a bike ride in Daphne, stopped on a not-so-steep-but-still-kicking-my-butt hill, looked over and saw the cutest pumpkin decoration made of corrugated steel on the house across the street.
The picture didn’t come out as well as I had hoped, but it captured the idea. I often drive my companions nuts while out for bike rides as I stop to take pictures of random things I see that give me ideas for later art projects. The other day I was out for a walk and saw lots of acorns on the ground and was reminded of something I saw on Pinterest about painting acorns with Halloween designs.
That’s one reason I love Pinterest – it lets you organize these random images of ideas into a visual reminder of what you saw that sparked a creative idea.
I’m always looking for fresh new ideas for the studio, for the canvas and wood cutouts that we offer, as well as for fresh ideas that let us paint outside traditional mediums.
