Daily Painting 12/14/10
Acrylic on Canvas, 10″ x 10″

You don’t have to look far to Find Your Festive.  Maybe festive is in your closet, or on your feet. 

The point is, inspiration is everywhere. In your back yard, your closet, or as I recently learned, on Artists Helping Artists, a live talk radio show hosted by Leslie Saeta and Dreama Tolle Perry.  These two artists host a weekly live talk radio show. Their show is an informative conversation with helpful insight into everything from creativity to organization to marketing.   
One interesting show I listened to was an interview with the artist Carol Marine who committed over 4 years ago, to do a small painting every day.  Wow.  Now that is inspiring. 
For about 3-4 months last year I was doing a tea bag drawing every day and I loved watching the drawings evolve. While that series is on hold, I still have tea bags hanging everywhere and they often make their way into my work.

Committing to a daily practice, whether it be in the studio, or on or off the yoga mat is at the top of my list.
