What fuels you? What makes you create? What makes you get up and run (not walk!) to your art stash and make art?

For me, mostly other artist and their work or a new technique that I want to try out. I found Traci Bautista some time ago, I have her bookmarked. :) But it wasn’t until yesterday while I was watching some of her videos that I just had to pick up a piece of paper and a pen and start doodling.

But that wasn’t enough. Five minutes into doodling I had to get up from my chair and go get some paint. Red and yellow were the first paint tubes I got my hands on and this is what came out of it. :) I didn’t even look for appropriate paper, I just tore some sheets of an old calendar of mine. See, there is a photo of my beloved Kana.

Birdies were on my mind.


I used punchanella and blue paint.

Monoprinting hearts. I cut out a heart shape from a plastic sheet to make a stencile.

I hear peacock feathers are all the hipe right now. :)

I have no idea what I'm gonna do with it but it felt good just doodling without a goal in mind. Sorry about the red overload. :)
What about you? What made you jump lately?
