Last week I shared photos from a lovely cemetery in Cadaqués, Spain. Today I thought I'd share some other photos from our visit there.
Some things that artistically inspired me:
- Street Art. Lots of it.
- The mix of ancient and modern. Really old (think 16th Century) buildings with TV antennas. Creates a neat visual contrast.
- Foreign-to-me flora. I find nature very inspiring and it's so great to be able to see different plants than the ones I'm used to.
- Architecture. From stacked stone walls to smooth white houses with red roofs and blue accents, I found so much architecture I wanted to pay attention to. Especially doors.
Take a peek through the photos and see if something might inspire your next creation!
The two giant silver heads in the photo below are part of Dali's House.
How will this inspiration find its way into my work? Well, that's the million dollar question isn't it? I don't really know yet, but I suspect:
You know, whenever anybody says they don't know what to create I kind of stare at them in disbelief. I certainly go through phases where I hate everything I make and feel like a total failure and feel creatively blocked. But I never run out of things I want to try because *inspiration is all around us.* Seriously. Every single one of these photos (even the one where I'm eating ice cream) has something of artistic value to take away from it. The fun part -- and the part that makes each of us unique -- is what we take away and how we use it.
So, what are you taking today? And how are you going to use it?
Thanks for stopping by!
