Everyone knows that you’re never sure where or when inspiration will strike. What is certain is that it won’t hit you if you’re not looking for it.
Like the other day while dropping off some flour at a friend’s house. In the driveway a neighbor had dropped the cellophane and organza from a bouquet of flowers. And there it was. A goldfish. Away to my sketchbook, some photos and drawings of goldfish from the internet and my design was decided. A quick pattern made, supplies gathered and away I went. Okay, the supplies gathered was a long frustrating venture into the depths of the garage and many, many unpacked boxes labeled “garage” that contained everything from art supplies to electronics, papers, books, bike parts, fabric etc. etc..
