I collect a lot of books, new and used, to give me inspiration. For some reason, calligraphy has always inspired me with the shapes and movement of script. I see an eventual change in my art , heading in the direction of script and nature. I don't know what it is yet, but I am inspired! What inspires you? I find it very easy to get lost in the CRAFT of art...altered books, playing with color, fabric painting. Sometimes I forget to be inspired by the playing to continue with my painting. My mother-in-law calls it 'idle hands making the devils' playground' , but my mother sees no harm in the play. Guess who I will listen too?
