Inspired

This 100 day challenge has been such a learning experience. Honestly there are days when I think, “What in the world am I going to paint?” I sit down at the drafting table and look at the dreaded white paper. Sometimes I flip through books for ideas.

My mother had a series of books called Great Museums of the World published by Newsweek in the 1960s. When she begged me to take some of her books I took these. I peruse one at a time for inspiration. The first one is the Tokyo Museum.

Now I am perusing the book on the Pinakothek in Munich. This is a museum I have actually been to. It was about 40 years ago and had become the old and new Pinakothek.

Ever notice how many of my paintings have women with tilted heads? Well, there are a lot of Madonnas in my art history books from college. That seemed to be the pose of the day in the Renaissance. So the secret has been revealed, I don’t tilt my head and look in the mirror for inspiration.

I am presently on day 156 so will catch you up on the last few week’s work. Prices are now $45 for matted and archival wrapped paintings. Framed work is $100. Shipping is not included.
