Colorful Lady

On Friday, there was a snow storm that kept me indoors for the day.   I took advantage of that time by restyling some old drawings in Illustrator and Photoshop, playing with colors and organic shapes, lines, and textures.  I appreciate both organic lines and the preciseness of straight, edged lines.  In this piece I left some of the organic feel but added in some straight lines.

Dancing Lady is an example of the original black ink drawing of this new stylized image.  Originally, I created this ink drawing as a basis for a series of painting  I completed a few years ago using all organic lines.

Finding Creative Inspiration

In a quest to find my own creative inspiration in this new year, I came up with this design.  Lately, I have been experiencing a creative block.  Although I have a few ideas that I want to get started on, I can't seem to begin. 

Ironically, I had been looking forward to January as a time to begin some new projects but maybe I put a little too much pressure on myself causing this creative anxiety of sorts.  Hopefully, I can ease up and find the inspiration that I need to proceed forward.

What is your creative inspiration?
