There I was in this store, just browsing and admiring, yes more gadgets. But mostly to see where were decorator trends going. My creative juices are running dry. I need to be inspired by ‘NEW’ – ‘DIFFERENT’ – ‘CURRENT TRENDS’
After all, as an artist, we must think like this. If we are to create decorative art, it needs to follow the fashion. Makes it such a disposable art form, doesn’t it? The proof of this is a constant reminder of much loved and admired old paintings by excellent artists just sitting in a corner of the art studio. What a shame. But these works, just simply do not suit the current decor, the current design of the house, the current life style. You must know what I mean. I feel shamed.
Now back to this particular day. I had no heavy photographic equipment, just my phone. Mind you, if I had have dug out my DSLR I would have been swiftly stopped by one of the sales staff or sure. Bless you phone.
So without much further ado, I managed to capture this image on the left. What drew me to this image? No not the 3 green jugs, but rather the tree behind. I am always seeking tree foliage and branches to utilise or inspire me in my creative work. The irony of it all, it was the 3 little green jugs that would steal the show at the end. That is the beauty of the progression of being creative, working and pushing the limits in thought and ideas.
