Ode to a Muse
Updated: Feb 4, 2020
Inspiration. It comes in all forms, shapes and sizes. There is nothing an artist likes better than to have a muse to get the ol juices flowing in the idea creation tank between the ears, and in the center of the heart!
Sometimes someone will walk into your life, and it’s almost as though sparks are flying off of them! The things they say, the clothes they wear, the things they do, seem to automatically generate a flurry of creative ideas that make you compelled to have to put them on a canvas.
Sometimes, you are in a location that feels energetic and beautiful, and feels exhilarating! The people, animals, buildings, nature all seem to just be firing off fireworks that beckon you to create a beautiful masterpiece!
Oh, the muses are many, and I’m so thankful for them! It gives me all the power I need to create the magic with my paintbrush that is needed to generate all the inspiration the world needs! How fun it is to be an artist. How magical it truly is to be able to change the world. To be able to create what is needed and wanted in the world!
As Shakespeare once said…
“O! for a muse of fire, that would ascend the brightest heaven of invention.”
Having a muse, feels as though a fire burns within you. A fire to create. A fire filled with creativity!
And I agree with Shakespear! Oh for a muse of fire, it does ascend the brightest heaven of invention!
