People often ask me where I get my inspiration for my paintings and sculpture, well all artwork from. And my answer is usually – from absolutely everywhere. And I truly mean that, driving in the car, seeing an advertising sign, going to a birthday celebration, or a wedding or any festive occasion at all. Going to the movies or seeing a play, opera, band or performance of any kind. Eating out, eating in (by now you probably know I do like my food, Lol) . Also getting together with friends, holidays and travelling of any kind, going for a walk, to the gym, listening to songs, reading books, reading magazines, watching TV and doing just about anything. My problem is more- so little time and so many images to create.
If you would like to see some of my public sculptures here is a link to one of the art blogs 109 Stories behind the Wall
CERAMIC & MOSAIC
This Artwork ( which is hand made ceramic and mosaic), IF YOU REMEMBER THE SIXTIES YOU WEREN’T THERE (check out the action under the table) came to me whilst listening to the local ABC Radio Station here in Adelaide Radio 891, A couple of my favourite radio announcers Matt Abraham and David Bevin was doing their usual funny banter back and forward and this line came up If you remember…….. And instantly in my mind I saw the whole picture.
I must remind you that I was but a small child in the sixties so this is not autobiographical, although to be fair I did pass through a bit of a naughty stage in my youth too. I remember being totally fascinated by a tomato sauce bottle and thinking that was the funniest thing I had ever seen in my life and for some reason had the munchies something shocking.
Lucky for me I soon came to my senses and pursued more healthy paths ,and even luckier than that my darling children seem to be a whole lot more focused and are pursuing very worthwhile areas as a psychology and a nursing student . Or is that so that they can take care of their dear old parents in our twilight year’s lol;
Here is another quote I like from Oscar Wilde
“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”
Till next time, happy painting and sculpting to everyone!
