Art Inspiration is Closer Than You Think

When you are stuck and need some inspiration for your next painting, check out the items in your home. Don't just think of a bowl as something to put your cereal in, or that is the plate I got from Crate and Barrel, or that mug is a design licensed by Mary Englebreit. Look at the texture on items in your home, the way light shines through the glass, what great reflections are on a pot, or the brilliant color combinations in a piece of fabric. Maybe that is all it will take to get your creative juices flowing again. Check out Kate Harper's article on "Need Card Design Ideas?" ( to see what she found in a 10 minute walk through her home. I betcha you also have some great inspirational items hanging around that you didn't know you had!
