I've been looking for a common denominator in my work and I think I've found it. Sometimes things are right in front of your face and you fail to recognize them for what they are. I've been struggling with the idea that my work seems to be all over the place. Yet, I have maintained a strong conviction not to be led by styles or trends. Recently I've been to the Fine Arts museum twice and I stand before the O'Keeffe paintings soaking up all the color and imagery for all it's worth. I don't know precisely when her work began to pull me towards it, but I can say this: that it hasn't let up. I'm not in any way, shape or form comparing myself to the great O'Keeffe, but I have seen how color, simplicity, emotion and life show up on the page in front of me. Rather than try to explain what I'm thinking, I post this sketch. The weird thing is I saw the finished drawing in my mind's eye before I even started it.
Question: How does the work of your favorite artist inspire you?
