How I Get Inspired – When I’m Not

I’m not always in the creative mood.  Sometimes it takes pushing myself and sometimes it just takes three key ingredients!

Just the other night, I felt so tired, had a stomach ache and just wanted to veg on the couch.  That wasn’t an option, as I had a student coming in less than an hour.  So, I made an herbal tea, which one of my students gave me (thanks Deb) went down to my studio, put on a classical cd and began the process.  Squirt out the primary’s, pick up my palette knife and before I knew it, I was relaxed and getting into the groove.  Once my student arrived, I was enthusiastic and eager to teach. 

Tea, music and paint.  That works for me!

About Lisa's Palette

"My paintings are often admired for their realistic qualities through the use of light, shadow and colour. Capturing the beauty within the rustic landscapes of my entitled series, 'Farms of Simcoe County,' has become my passion. Keeping my camera close at hand allows me to capture the images as I come across them, while I use my artistic gifts to seek out particular points of interests in these images. Painting on location brings a connection to the subject, through not only sight, but sound and smell as well. My goal is to produce paintings that give the viewer a sense of calmness and relaxation.”
