Inspire Me Thursday - Open Challenge


This weeks challenge -

What’s your favorite source for inspiration? Do you feel you need to shake things up in your art? Are you in the mood to try a new technique, a new color palette, a new medium? What is your passion? What are your fears? What is your favorite thing about creating? Your least favorite? Why do you create? Why are you an artist? How do you describe your art? What are your goals? Your dreams?

Colour is my biggest inspiration. It is tuned to my emotions and instincts and defines each piece of work. I don't start with a blank canvas, I start with a beautiful colour and see where it takes me. As those of you who have been reading my posts for a few weeks will know I am in the process of shaking things up a little. Actually that's not quite true. Things have been floating around in my head for so long now I am trying to piece them together into a coherent whole. Shaking it all up again is the last thing I need! The challenge is to see if I get there or not. My passion is to create, my fear is failure. I create because I have to, I have absolutely no choice about it. My favourite thing about creating and my least favourite is the process of creating. I don't truly enjoy a creating a piece until I finish it. I am an artist because I say I am. I don't describe my art, you do. My goal is to live my dream and I am just about doing that. Could do with a bigger house maybe but we can't have everything can we?!

Lovely work, Kala. I always find your site inspiring. I enjoyed learning a bit about you, too. Oh, and bigger houses just mean more to clean. ;-)

People really are different... you say you start with a color not a blank paper and that is what I do, I always start with a blank paper, pick up some drawing material and see where it takes me. Loved to read your answers and your work looks really great!
