Twice a year Boulder City, Nevada has their art fair, one in the spring and the other one in October which is the biggest one. Artists from several states attend to showcase their creations and hope that someone will be inspired by their work to purchase it.
If you want to be inspired, attending an art fair such as this one will surely help you with some ideas. From potato head creations to fine art paintings, there is much creativity that went into these pieces. You will at least go away with some appreciation for the artists.
Surrounding yourself with other creative people often creates inspiration or lights up a spark in you. Fill your mind with fresh ideas. Go to conferences; take classes; read books about your hobby or passion. Look for the beauty, and the symbolism in everyday life. Dream and Imagine the possibilities, whether it is planning your next vacation, moving to another city, ideas on how to turn your passion into a business, finding that soul mate. “To create one’s own world takes courage.” Georgia O’Keeffe
Anything that comes from the heart is what is important. “If I create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing.” Marc Chagall
Spending time in nature can sometimes ignite inspiration. Walking barefoot in the park, watching children play, laugh and have fun being silly, looking for figures in clouds, are some things one can do.
TV and movies are another way to find inspiration. TED has many inspirational, motivational and informational videos.
Listening to different types of music can stir feelings of inspiration in you. Research has shown that listening to classical music in the background helps you learn better.
Write a bucket list of all the things you want to experience before you die.
Reflect on everything you’ve learned and accomplished and how you’ve made a positive difference in the world.
When asked where he gets his inspiration, Richard Branson stated ” My best sources of inspiration come from the everyday frustrations I encounter at work and in my personal life. Simply taking note of them can lead to great ideas, because if you follow up and find that you can offer consumers a better solution than the ones currently on the market, you may soon be running a successful business.”
Most important is to remember that whatever it is you create, it is your creation, your dream, your life and you can paint it any way you want. And, if you don’t like what you are creating, you can always start over with a clean canvas.
