What inspires you? A beautiful sunset, trees swaying in the breeze, a shocking or beautiful piece of art, or maybe music?
We are all inspired by what we come in contact with if we open ourselves up to the possibilities. I find that travel is one of the best sources of inspiration for me.
While in Italy, I was inspired by something unexpected. To see what I mean, take a look at the video below. Then read on, because travel has inspired me in other ways as well.
One of the pieces of art that I am most proud of was inspired by something totally unexpected during travel.
While visiting Iceland several years ago, hubby and I had lunch and then dinner at a restaurant that was located on an old farm. The food was delicious, which is why we dined there two times in one day. While there, something caught my eye. On each table was an antique book. People from Iceland are avowed book lovers, so finding a book on the table wasn't a surprise. Photographs of the family that had owned the farm for generations were pasted inside the book, along with a description of the history of the farm. This simple book on a dining table sparked a kernel of an idea in me, and Treatise was born. To read more about Treatise, you may click here.
