"I would like to paint the way a bird sings" - Claude Monet
Whether you're a writer, or a musician, “artist’s block” is a condition that may discourage the aspirations of creative youth. It can just be so hard sometimes to think of what new piece to create! Personally, I have found that Nature is full of beautiful surprises, and is a constant source of inspiration.
When I wonder what to paint for my next art piece, my mind immediately turns to the soft wingbeats of birds, the fluttering of leaves in the wind, and the lapping of waves on a beach. Many of the pictures I have created are of birds and other wildlife, and each one of them displays a different perspective of nature. It could be a Snowy Owl battling climate change in the Arctic, a Painted Bunting resisting urban development, or a Snowshoe Hare with the most innocent eyes escaping a ferocious Lynx attack. Nature teaches me something new every time. Nature is unpredictable and is under a constant threat. When I paint, my goal is to raise awareness to the dangers wildlife face in an ever changing environment.
Nature is my palette that inspires and ignites my imagination, and I encourage everyone to discover their own creative outlet.
