What inspires me?

Beautiful things are all around us if we just take the time to look. Beauty can be overwhelming and huge, like a sunset dominating the sky over the Gulf of Mexico. It can be small and subtle, like the pattern of veins on a leaf or a tiny moth at rest. It can be dramatic, like the angry clouds ahead of a storm system, or gentle like dewdrops clinging to a spiderweb. The full moon and cloud formations are especially fascinating to me. Try to keep your eyes open to all the beautiful things that surround you. My desire to preserve and share that beauty is what inspires me to pick up my brushes.
