The challenge for day twenty-two is: Inspirational. I confess I am not a fan of posters and the like that feature inspirational quotes, so I chose to feature artists I find inspirational instead. I love the dramatic lighting that was used by artists like Caravaggio, and later by N.C. Wyeth, the photo realism of Norman Rockwell and the beautiful stylized work of art nouveau artists such as Alfonse Mucha. And although I rarely branch out of the 2-D world of painting and drawing, sometimes I am inspired to try my hand at creating 3-D works like altered books. Though I wouldn't say I've had a lot of success in that area, just seeing what other artists can create inspires me to keep trying and branching out into something new.
