Inspiration, Where To FInd It

Good Morning,

I am once again out of artists to feature, so instead I thought it might be fun to share a game that has been going around on Facebook, as well as being helpful to get those creative juices flowing.

Social Media is a wonderful way to share your artwork, whether it be painting, sculpting, knitting, jewelry or what have you.  It is also wonderful for introducing to yourself to things, people or places you may never have thought of venturing to or meeting.

The Facebook game consisted of liking a post by a friend who had posted a photo of an artist's work, in turn that friend would give you an artist (name) to go discover and then you would post a photo of that artist's work, when people liked the photo you shared you then gave them an artist to go discover.  The idea was to fill Facebook with art, and for the most part it worked.

The best part for me was not only discovering new artists, but finding something about the piece that drew me to it, and with that, allowing my own creativity to play off what intrigued me about the piece.

I would encourage you to cruise the web, do a little search for whatever interests you that day, seek and find out what it is that speaks to you.

Some suggestions for discovery:

Jeff Koons - He makes enormous Balloon Animals from of Stainless Steel.

Or maybe Christian Schloe

Whatever or whoever inspires you is not important, as long as you enjoy your journey and the process of creating, you're doing it right.

Thank you for stopping in and having a look.

The Alchemists Vessel would like to wish you a pleasant day.
