Filling the Art Tank

How do you fill your art tank?

I love to look for the things around me. The way the trees in a snowy landscape create a repeating linear pattern, the stark contrast. How perfect God made that one pine cone hanging on a branch.

The patterns within a piece of ancient wall paper 
or the beautifully illustrated pages of a children's storybook.

And then there are the times when creativity begets creativity. Just creating, in any medium helps me want to create more and more. Drawing with chalk on the driveway, sketching with a pencil, coloring with crayons and my 3 year old. Now if only I had time to finish all of the creative ideas that pop into my head while I'm immersed in the beauty of creation! Maybe the next post should be about time management?
