Art Inspires Art

My abstract photography class started at the end of July. I picked this session because we were supposed to be moved into our new house by then and I envisioned creating masterpieces in my beautiful new photo studio. It didn’t quite work out that way. Not only were we not moved in, there was still a significant amount of work to be done. So I didn’t feel like I had a whole lot of time for creative expression.

But taking the class meant having assignments and coming back the next week with something to show to the rest of the participants. I needed some quick and easy inspiration and I found it in the form of art – the many paintings and pieces of art glass that fill our new home.


I created a lot of blurry images of paintings and glass, some of which turned out pretty well. But in the end, it wasn’t art inside the house that turned out to be the inspiration for “Symphony of Color.”
