Where to Find Inspiration for Painting

An inspiration for painting can come at any moment.  I always take my camera with me.  I never know what beauty will show up and inspire me to get my watercolor supplies out and paint. Lately, I have been having fun painting nature:  birds, feathers, foxes, bunnies… on a recent hike and morel hunting mission, I am inspired to paint mushrooms!  Today!

Where do you find inspiration for painting?

“Nature” is what we see—
The Hill—the Afternoon—
Squirrel—Eclipse— the Bumble bee—
Nay—Nature is Heaven—
Nature is what we hear—
The Bobolink—the Sea—
Thunder—the Cricket—
Nay—Nature is Harmony—
Nature is what we know—
Yet have no art to say—
So impotent Our Wisdom is
To her Simplicity.

Emily Dickinson
