I can be inspired by just about anything. Focusing on one inspiration is the hard part for me. I have a history of too many media due to exactly this combination.

It's interesting to note that my recent work has become a bit more focussed since a bad accident left me confined to a wheelchair for three months followed by many months of rehab. The restrictions that kept me from accessing studios due to stairs led my DH to move things to a makeshift mini-studio on my dining table. Combined with a lot of free time laid up looking longingly out the window, it's no wonder that my recent work is filled with windows, trees and free birds. 

Of course, I'm no longer restricted, so I have to consciously try to keep my attention from wandering.

Yeah, I start too many projects. And then there is life and other distractions...


I would agree with you. Finding inspiration is easy, but bringing the idea to fruition is hard.

The artist must be resilient in facing obstacles, and committed to their own path, .

Develop a thick skin ignoring negativity, naysayers and external measures of success.

Passionate about bring the idea to bring the work to completion.

I wrote a post on ASK Harriete about this whole idea.
