Day 9

"The torpid artist seeks inspiration at any cost, by virtue or by vice, by friend or by fiend, by prayer or by wine." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

I won't say just how I found my inspiration today, but I absolutely love the feeling that I get when an idea comes to me. This "A-Ha!" moment is pretty moving, when you just KNOW what an artwork will look like before you even start it. Ironically, I did make some changes while the creative process played out, but that might just have left me with another idea for a future portrait...
