People often ask us where we get the inspiration for all of the paintings we’ve done over the years. At Cocktails & Color we are fortunate to have many talented artists teaching for us. Here is what a few of them had to say about inspiration:
“ When I’m out shopping it’s often with a purpose. If I’m in Target or one of the craft stores I will look at what’s trending. I love to find fun colors, images and patterns and then add my own touch of creativity to mesh them together and create something new.”
“ I am always inspired by Presque Isle and looking at the sky. I will often take photos with my own camera and then paint that. Images on Pinterest, Instagram and fine art sites will give me great ideas as well.”
“ Nature spots and parks are very inspiring to me. I have really been enjoying Plein Air painting with natural light. Unwinding in nature always brings out my creative side”.
There are so many inspirations around us. Take the time to look around and see what inspires you. Happy creating!
