Seeking Inspiration

Pin It I've been kind of down today, wondering if this is all for nothing. Am I kidding myself, thinking that something good will come of this? Am I delusional, thinking I can make it as an artist?

I typed "inspiration" in Google and asked for image results.  This one really struck me.

For some reason, I see the hand as a silver platter.  The bubble feels like a trap, like the walls we build around ourselves.  The fact that his arm is out of the bubble seems like a transition between him being trapped by his own inhibitions and him breaking free from those inhibitions to finally soar above, realizing his full potential.  

Who knows? Maybe the hand will close, the bubble will burst, and the man will be crushed to death...

Nevertheless, I needed a little inspiration and found some.  The blog lives another day.

Much Love,
