Some of you asked when I’ll start painting again. It’s a complicated process. The first step is to discover inspiration. While this bed is soft, it’s not terribly inspiring. Let’s go look elsewhere.

The weather is often my painting inspiration and when everything is right, I sit here at the window for hours. Our weekend early spring weather was great for inspiration. But let’s look for more.

Now, it may look like I was thinking of napping… and you’d be right! Looking for inspiration can be sleepy work.

Psych! No inspiration over there… unless you get inspiration from dad’s sock drawer. Not saying that couldn’t be inspiring to someone, sorry dad. Socks have just never been my cup of tea, or my pot of paint.

Yep, I think I might have found some inspiration this past weekend and that painting will happen soon, I promise. But in the meantime, I can hear you thinking about inspiration!

  1. Take a nap Quint and you may find you will dream about something that will inspire you to start painting.

  17. You can’t hurry the muse, Quint. But we’re looking forward to seeing what you create when inspiration does strike.

  18. Hope you find your inspiration, but in the meantime, a nap probably wont hurt!

  19. Quint, it’s a good thing you can wait for the muse to hit – my human has never really had that freedom, MOL!

  22. It are tuff to get inspired sometimes.

  23. Winter time truly does not get our inspirational juices flowing either. It just seems like a time to paint imaginary pictures on the inside of our eyelids while napping. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
