What's your inspiration # 19

Inspiration Avenue is celebrating 500 plus followers and they want to know what inspires us.

Let's play along! :)
I find myself inspired mostly by faces, paterns and color combinations. I have caught myself numerous times studying shadows on my hubby's face. Like when we're having a conversation and his face is lit from the side I think to myself how I would paint those shadows. Don't  worry! He's used to me not paying attention to him. :)
Other artists are a great inspiration to me as well. I don't have a style or a technique that I prefer. It's all around feel of the piece I'm looking at. Oh, and watching artists create is my favorite thing. It's the energy I feed off of.
Also challenges inspire me. You'll agree with me on this one. When you've been painting for a while you tend to gravitate to certain objects, colors and so on. And whenever I'm challenged to do something different I get all giddy from excitement. I research the hell out of it until I find something I like then I try to make it my own.
P.S. These were inspired by Sarah Bishop. I've done it once before. :)



  1. Hey Nat, I love your sexy girls. They look great. I often study my hubby's face also. He he he . Great mind think alike.
    Kyles :D

  2. Woow... ovo je pravo iznenađenje, vrlo sexy djevojke, prekrasni radovi!

    Pozdrav iz Rijeke:)

  3. your voluptuous women are soooo awesome -- every curve a piece of music. My trouble is I am inspired by far toooo much. Not being allowed to go to art school has caused me to create a one woman art school where I am inspired by everything from jewelry to nichos to hand made books and journals, to multi media, to large canvases, to collage, to assemblage, to writing. I feel like a one woman artist colony who is having a creative explosion. Since coming to Mexico I am experiencing a creative eruption of sorts. Where will it lead? Who knows. At least you KNOW you are a painter, and have found your voice. And a lovely voice it is ... I love your art. hugs, Donna

  4. Love your curvy women! Valerie
