Waiting to be inspired was like trying to see the sun moving through the sky. It seems to be perfeclty stagnant. But in fact the earth is traveling 67,000 mph around the sun. Inspiration was all around me. I just couldn’t notice it.
So lately I’ve been deliberate about seeing the amazing things that are constaltly circling all around me. It wasn’t hard and it didn’t take long. Especially with Oregon’s amazing grass fields and billowy clouds and neon wildlife. I promised God I will never get over his sherbert sunrise again.
I’ve also been captivated by smoke. My most recent painting was a portrait of my wife with smoke curling up around her face. I think it’s so fascinating the way it moves through still air.
