I don't look for inspirations in nature like some artists do; I look for my inspiration in colors, people and stories, people-made shapes like architecture, historical motifs and textiles. But I do like to look at certain things. My favorites are:
And deep-sea creatures, but I've got no photos of my own of them. And feathers, I collect feathers. And I take pictures of eggs and bird nests. But not spider webs.
Clare Plug has scrapbooks for each of her favorite things. How lovely would it be to stare at the pages, in bed, on lazy Saturday mornings.
I've started a few notebooks myself this week.
