Where does inspiration come from

Does it just pop out at you from the ether? or does it come thru mediation? maybe you get comes while looking thru magazines or photographs. Does listening to sounds like music or rain bring ideas? Or are you weird like me? Mine comes while staring at blank floors ceilings and being drawn to cracks and seeing images form in front of my eyes. Even soap scum floating in water swirls into magical images before my


Do have scraps upon scraps of paper, card board, napkins etc filled with sketches?

I think the artist see's inspiration in everything, thats what makes us create it is a force we have no control over. Much like an impulse that compels us into action.

About Me

My photo
Johnnie Belinda creating unique art works out of melted pigmented bees wax. My unique encuastic abstracts I use a technique of melting, tilting, and swirling that creates the vivid abstracts of spirit beings and florals. I have no thought to what may appear on the hardboard surface. Allowing a force not of my own to guide my hand into creating exquisite one of a kind abstracts. Not only do I create abstracts in encaustic, I also use acrylics and watercolors. I am self taught. I'm constantly drawing on things, from scraps of paper to canvas, to big pieces or bed sheets. I truly must create the images my mind sees.
