Question 9: What do you find inspiring as an artist?


What inspires me for my creations, it’s really… there really isn’t any special rule to this for me. There are so many things that become points of departure. Often when I go to bed, totally relaxed, my head on the pillow, that is when I think about what my next painting will be. Sometimes, ideas suddenly appear like that, other times it has to do with the daily routine, a bird that comes to the bird feeder, a person with pride who walks by. Sometimes we can feel that in a manner, somebody who is proud, who is beautiful. Sometimes it’s the energy that someone has when they’re explaining or doing something, I find this energy inspiring. Sometimes… I think it’s looking at what’s going on around you. There is no special rule for this.
