I always think of one of those cartoon lightbulbs, because one never knows where inspiration will hit them next and then all of a sudden DING it's there.
Music, words and color!
music, people, and authenticity
The first thing that comes to my mind is all the beauty God gave us in abundance on a platter to use for our own creativity. Feelings rushing through our minds and hearts. Love finding inspiration in things that many people just pass by without any notice of their beauty or significance.
For me it comes in two ways. Sometimes I'll just fixate on one sense. I'll just see a texture and I'll have to create it. Or I'll think of a smell like Chili and I'll have to cook it. Other times when I can't think of what to make, I try to focus on the process. Just start making something and suddenly it's like Oh that's what it was supposed to be.
