“There are moments in our lives, there are moments in a day, when we seem to see beyond the usual. Such are the moments of our greatest happiness. Such are the moments of our greatest wisdom. If one could but recall his vision by some sort of sign. It was in this hope that the arts were invented. Sign-posts on the way to what may be. Sign-posts toward greater knowledge”.
Robert Henri from the book ‘The Art Spirit’
Where do you get your inspiration…is the question I am asked most.
I am inspired quickly and easily. The rich, lush beautiful wall color in Mark’s studio inspired me to change a wall in my gallery. The interesting glass straws in Raye’s gallery inspires me to be more aware of our great earth. A beautiful sun lit piece of glass by Tami can easily inspire a new color palette for a painting.
I am often inspired by the youth perusing the gallery. They are wise and full of ideas. They are our future, so I listen.
Mostly, I am inspired by those two precious faces…Philip and Edie.
They make me want to be a better person, to set an example that will make them proud, to speak words carefully. They hear everything and they don’t just listen…..they hear!! They make me realize that the little things aren’t really so little after all.
