We Love Stained Glass!
David Gomm started building stained glass windows in 1983 and soon convinced Jeanne to join him in the art. They have become experts at many aspects of stained glass building, design and repair. Their website www.gsg-art.com has many tips and articles about stained glass, art in general and creativity.
Inspiration can come in many forms and from many different sources. There really are times where I look for inspiration and nothing comes, I sit wondering if I'm no longer creative, if I need to find a normal job because I can't create any longer. Then, the dry spell ends and I'm inspired by every little thing that crosses my path. The wind inspires, the colors in nature inspire, the stories I hear, the quiet of a moment. It's really amazing the difference between the dry spell and the storm of inspiration. The other day, the floods came. We hiked (walked) to Bridal Veil Falls, inspiration! I attended the Creative Collaborative meeting http://www.collaborativecreative.com/ inspiration.
Jolynn Foreman told me stories (http://www.utahcountyart.com/jolynn-forman.html) that sent me off on creative imaginings. I found a drawing that was similar to one I was planning, so I saved a lot of repetition and got a lot of work done in a short time.
Just a great sense of joy comes when the muse hits!
