Inspired by you!
Well, yes, YOU! Chances are if you are reading my blog I have read yours, or seen your art at some time.
This is my first 4" x 4" collage (thanks Carmel , for the canvas).
The piece has photographed very true to colour except for the face which does not have the yellow tinge. The background, twinkling H2Os, was inspired by Holly. I am sure I have seen alphabet hair somewhere, the hair shape is very Kelly Rae and, believe it or not, the shadow flowers were inspired by Claudine Helmuth.
While I loath the thought of copying another's work I am becoming more and more aware that very few individual components, within my art, are unique, rather compositions. I am not sure I like that ... Then again what an enourmous ego it would take to imagine a part-time, beginning artist could create something totally unique. What I am sure of is that on this journey to express myself, and perhaps to one day find my own style, it seems necessary.
