Inspiration is critical to any artist. Walking around New Orleans at night is an incredible source of inspiration to any artist with a pulse.
Whether writing a novel like A Moveable Marfa, a short story or painting, nightscapes awaken within me a mood or feeling that can launch a burst of expression.
A character can spring from someone you see or a setting you spy.
Or maybe a painting you see. The below painting inspired, “The Girl in the Green Dress” short story, part of my short story collection slated for publication later in 2020.
A bar can beckon you…
Or something completely unexpected may spark an idea.
The night awaits, go get inspired…
