A funny lil story.....
While at my easel today, my girlfriend calls..... to catch me up on all the juicy weekend gossip. While chatting.... she asks me.... " What was that scream?" I laugh and say just a movie I am listening to while painting. She laughs backs and says "Oh no not another one of YOUR movie choices?"
My reply.... "My movie choices (laughing) My movies are not bad?" She inquired "So what block buster is it this time?"
"Black X-mas".... (Giggling)
She replies... " Oh yes, the slash'em up horror movie..... GREAT CHOICE!!!! What another academy award winner!
My response..." Ok so it's not an academy award winner( that is for sure) however it is inspirational!"
"Of course...... I needed to be in a different mindset for painting today.. then the norm."
She replied... " The norm, there is NO norm in your mind. You so need help!" LOL
I have to agree with her on that one there is no norm for me.... but I am an artist! Artists are not "normal" anyway. LOL
I am asked quite often as to what inspires me.... my answer....
Anything really. From my dreams or nightmares, a song or a b rated movie ( ok maybe Black Xmas is more like a d rated movie), a bird to rain gently falling on my rooftop..... the world is my inspiration.
