I have learned that waiting to be inspired to create art can be a very long wait. Days. Weeks. Years. Decades.
I don’t wait for inspiration I start it. With a DOODLE.
The following art began with a squiggly line and the path it took.

They say a good artist begins with learning drawing skills. I mastered my drawing skills beginning with drawing on the furniture at 3. Most of my artwork was drawing people when I began. I wanted to be a fashion illustrator when I was in high school.
