Just a kwik note to Sharon (erased email address cleaning my mailbox)
I go along with the ideas submitted in this forum and would try them
out. But here is just one more. I have found that my artistic inspiration
usually visits me at inopportune times and scurries into a dark corner when
ordered to perform on demand, but I have found a trick that works for me.
No matter what medium I intend to work in, I chop a hunk off a 25# BLOCK of
clay and let my hands start creating. Instantly shapes forms ,textures and
shadows start to emerge sometimes in group or alone as a piece of sculpture
as my hand busily work away, my mind conjures up images, colours, lines and
values in rythem thus attracting the muse of inspiration to join the
ensemble. If nothing else works try it.............
