I'm pretty obsessed with gold at the moment.
I bought two books; one on Gothic art and the other on Illuminated Manuscripts, and I think their influences are showing through. heh. Also - it's pretty much guaranteed that I'll love any piece of art that had gold leaf in it.

I've gotten a few questions about where I get inspiration from. That's a hard question to answer really because the answer is everywhere. I keep something with me at all times and write things down so I don't forget. I have pages and pages of "ideas" and it makes me so sad that I'm not quick enough to keep up. The biggest inspirations by far are other people and relationships with them, and music.
But I was tossing around the idea of doing a weekly prompt via this journal. Silly idea? Not something that people would HAVE to partake in... but maybe just something that would be here in case you got stuck. One of my favorite college professors used to give prompts as his assignments. Things like "transparent/translucent" or "Their eyes met and they knew..." I would definitely have to channel him. Let me know what you think...
They say if you want to be a writer... you should write everyday. Just something. Even if it's complete nonsense and you have nothing to say. I think the same goes for art. Having that creative outlet... the more you do it - the easier it is to do. Make sense?
