"Inspired"? Spirit-breathed! A google image search for the name of this blog supplied my header banner; as you can see, textures, colors, shapes, patterns, and surprises in God's natural creation provide a lot of my inspiration. Passages of scripture are closely yoked with deserts, oceans, flowers, fauna, skies, and prairies when I need inspiration. I first aspired to a career as an artist as a pre-schooler—or maybe that was in kindergarten. Later on it had to include liturgical art, meaning scripture-based or otherwise designed mostly for the church, though always in a style almost anyone could appreciate and sometimes love! I take lots and lots of photographs, but whenever possible I avoid taking pictures of people. Ever heard of anyone else who's happy to know enough Photoshop to be able discretely to delete people out of the pic?
This is exceptionally short for 5 minutes on a subject I know a whole lot about and couldn't wait to write about. Definitely not one of my most creative, felicitous, or inspired blog posts. Sometimes that happens.
