The subject is Subjects! They do matter.

IMG_2104Of all the paintings that you have created, which subject do you think was the most successful? Looking through art books, the still life always pops out and landscapes do also.Throughout history, artists have chosen those two things to paint. Along with portraits, those are best sellers.  But whenever I go to art shows, I always love to see animals or even off-the-beaten path objects, like old tools or items that one normally wouldn’t think of painting. I remember these like: Vicki P’s old truck, Drew B’s rusty shovel, Pat D’s mailboxes, (and I did an old egg beater once) are some of the iconic pieces I stopped and wondered about. Where did those inspirations come from?P1010733 - Copy

When you are in a slump, what do you do to get trough it? I am sure we have thousands of stories on this subject alone, so send them in. Maybe your story will help someone who is not producing what they would like to at some point. roz guitarHow do you get your inspirations?
