Inspiration ~ Tiles

The Ongoing Search for Inspiration


Artists are always seeking inspiration.


It is a never ending process.


I'm lucky since I have been
 doing this for a long time.


I have journals and sketchbooks
filled with ideas.


I have clip files with tons of things.


And now that we have digital
cameras and cameras in our phones
we can record whatever we come across.


I hope that doesn't mean I'll
ever stop sketching.


I get a lot of inspiration from tilework.


The colors!  The designs!


Recently, this tile from Morocco
was the inspiration...


...for this applique design.


And when I slept in this bed in Spain,
I always had inspiring dreams!
