Thanks for asking me to join this group.

Firstly, I remain open to inspiration from both familiar and unexpected sources. Those sources can be as simple as assembling stones, found objects, photos of art work (and other subject matter), reading a good scifi book (or other genres), etc.

Secondly, I am never without sources of inspiration, so I've never had to deal with artblock. I only have to sit at my bench and whooooosh, I'm ready to to take off with new work. I know that I'm sounding simplistic here, but I think that because a part of my brain is always making stuff, once I'm at my bench I'm ready to go. Just open the top of my skull and out it comes!!!

What makes this possible is, not only having what I need at hand to make my work, but also that I've had so many years making it, that I'm always ready to make more...that is, I'm in the groove for it, constantly. It's a good flow.

This also applies to my nest (our home), my knitting, my gardening... the way I order (or disorder) my life. There is a rush of endorphins that accompanies my contemplating making my stuff, and this lovely chemistry just pushes me onward.

Hope I'm making sense,

Linda Kaye-Moses

I am never without sources either. Everywhere I go, it seems what my mind wants to do is look for patterns of sorts. I see some debris on the street and my mind starts working, the question is instantly: What do I do with that? It never stops. My kids think that's weird. To me, that's my "normal" frame of mind.
