Inspiration

Artists are allows looking for inspiration for design ideas.  Sometimes inspiration is obvious and sometimes it comes in unexpected places.  Going to an art museum or gallery is always..... always, a sure fire source of inspiration.  Who can't go away from an exhibit without wanting to create art.

On Friday, a group of us visited the Morean Art Center's exhibit of Dale Chihuly's work.  Chihuly is a famous glass artist and his work is definite eye candy.  Chihuly was visiting the Art Center the day after we were there, but that would not have been a day that would work for us.



The pieces in the top two pictures are probably 6ft tall or higher.  He has created a glass garden full of huge glass plant life.  


These were large too and made me feel like I was looking through the glass of some exotic aquarium.  There were many more of these but I couldn't take a picture of the entire piece.  

Inspiration, inspiration everywhere (and so little time to use it all!)  I need to live to be 150 years old to do all the things I want to do.   (My luck it would like a Twilight Zone episode ..... live that long but not be able to see or move.)

Glad to hear about your latest inspirations!

But I don't think even 150 would work for me.... One of the great joys I find in life are new ideas and inspirations!

No matter how much time I may have left, my hope is never to run out of those....
