There are as many ways to come up with a subject for an art composition as there are artists. What inspires one artist leaves another artist totally uninspired. So, if you have looked at my art, you will notice I do not do typical landscapes. My landscapes are truly an altered reality. Am I copying another artist or using AI to create art. No and No.
I use photos of landscapes-sea, mountains, waterfalls, city streets, meadows, (and the list goes on) for my digital composite/collage art. I never know what will grab my interest and that is what is so wonderful about art. Never try to box yourself in and create something because another artist does or follow popular trends. Pick something that speaks to your heart, then go from there.
In my latest series, Wolf Moon, I knew I wanted to use a moon, a wolf, roses, and a beach. What could I use to tie all these separate items together and what story would they tell? For Wolf Moon Wolf, this was the photo that tied every element in that composition together. A woman in a long white dress walking down the beach. Add a few other images and layers to bring inspiration to life. Simple? No really. I had to look at many photos and images to find what spoke to my heart as an artist. Multiple hours and layers later, everything came together for Wolf Moon Wolf. If you check my Facebook or Instagram pages, you will see not one, but two versions. Why two versions? That’s another post.
