To Imagine is Everything


"My Imaginary Friend" 8" x 11" mixed media painting

I have come to believe that intuition is crucial for inspiration, and the more creative one becomes the more intuitive. I have always loved the words of Albert Einstein, and yesterday, as I was painting, this quote kept running through my mind. "To imagine is everything..." I finished my painting, scanned it and saved it, and this morning, when I checked the challenges at Illustration Friday and Inspire Me Thursday, I was amazed to discover that this piece fit so perfectly with both challenges. I truly believe that I was on some intuitive, artistic wavelength that opened my mind to inspiration and allowed my creativity to flow. But that's just me!

Wowwsers!!! this is simply FANTASTIC!!! I agree, I find I do best when I work intuitively....there's a place inside that one can find where the spark lives on it's own....

This may be my most favorite of all your work....I was just in awe when I saw it....

beautiful and wild...

Oooh, I really, really like this! I wonder who the imaginary friend is... The woman, the bird, the butterfly? Glad you found my blog or perhaps I wouldn't have found yours!
