I’ve heard it said that there is no such thing as a truly original artist. That’s because inspiration is absolutely everywhere and if we strive to be attuned to it, our work cannot help but be influenced by it. And that’s a good thing!
The background on this card was inspired by a banner headline on an email I got last week. As so often happens, my interpretation looks nothing like the original – which is somewhat annoying as I really was striving for a particular effect – but that’s OK: at least no one can ever accuse me of plagiarism! Still, I think I’ll go back downstairs and try again to come up with something closer to the original piece of art:
