I want to paint or draw again today but don’t have any ideas about what to draw. I have a file on my computer…whenever I see a photo I like or which gives me an idea to paint I download it and put it into this folder called “ARt Reference”…I guess I will look through that today. Maybe it will give me an idea.
Also I got two magazines from the local library called “Bird and Bloom” …they have some great photos in them of birds and flowers. Maybe I will get an idea from there.
I really feel that SZ has diminished my “wealth” of ideas about what to paint. I should go outside with my camera an photograph some of the spring flowers…maybe…But I want some ideas that make a statement… Something that speaks to the viewer. Pretty pictures are nice…but I would really like to have some symbolism or content that makes the viewer think and feel.
Do any of you draw? Where do you get your ideas? Do you think SZ has helped or hindered your creativity?
