I keep a stack of my favorite art magazines by the chair in my studio. I often pick one up and browse for a few minutes and something I see sparks an idea. I have enjoyed the work of several of the artists and recently took the time to check out Roben-Marie Smith's website. Check out her blog where she posts some very inspiring work and great tutorials. Seeing her work has inspired me to loosen up. I am even painting with my fingers now and if you know me you know that's a big deal.
