Small Landscape Day 34

Claudia McGill says: Have you ever thought about where ideas come from? Any ideas? Good, bad, stupid, indifferent ideas? I have. I’ve come to think there is a source of ideas, the ideas swirl all around us, and the ideas pick me, not the other way around. Maybe I look friendly, or maybe they are tired of flying around. Anyway. It is up to me to keep a door open, make a nice home for them, bring them along, but how they are created, well, try as I might, I just can’t quite get any better grip on the topic. And I’m satisfied to leave things at that. As long as those ideas keep finding their way into my head, well, that seems plenty good to me, and I just say – thanks for stopping in.

    I love all of your small works. And your consistency in sharing them, both visually and actually. Good question. For me, lately, they’ve been coming from the materials at hand, on my studio table.

    Hi Mim, so happy to hear from you. I know what you mean, I think sometimes the materials I have are urging me in some kind of direction, you do tend to feel it, don’t you? And also I find that your recipes (every one that I have tried of yours I liked) seem to be the same way – they seem to call out to you? Thanks for everything you said, I am enjoying the winter project of the Small Landscapes a lot.
