how to stay inspired: create for an audience of one

I have found that inspiration come from everything.  Music, art, food, movies, traveling, podcasts and so much more. As an artist we demand creativity from ourselves on a regular bases, pouring all we got to create something out of nothing.  To be able to do this on a consistent basis I have found that pouring back into that cup of creativity is one the best things I can do to continue to give as much as I can.

Creating for an audience of one is important.  I create pieces for me, no one else.   There wasn't an order, a wedding, or event that booked me for this one.  I got inspired and needed to develop a shape, and an idea with flowers.  I have found by doing this I can not only get an idea out and see if it works well, but also keep flexing that creative muscle. 

This inspires me and keeps me going.  This fills my cup.

This is how we continue to learn and develop the skills that we are so known for.  I did not design like this 10 years ago.  Trust me I am so glad Instagram was not a thing back then.  But with time and patience I created more and better. 

I used garden roses, peonies, lilac, roses, garden spray roses, anemones, ranunculus and lisianthus to name a few. We found this gorgeous urn at the local garden center and knew it needed to be filled with gorgeous blooms.
