The mysteries of inspiration
Updated: Jun 5
Inspiration is the creative energy any artist strives on. I have to give here the definition of an artist. The artist is someone who transforms an inspiration into creation. It's the same thing for a painter, a photographer, a writer or a cook, a gardener or any other creative person. In General, inspiration strikes us when we least expect it. When one looks for it one rarely finds it. So one tries to create without it and it's rarely convincing.

But, how to obtain inspiration and who sends it to us ? The artist spends most of his time waiting for inspiration to fall on him and meanwhile he makes as if he's got it. I spend a lot of time watching the skies waiting for the precious sesame but sometimes I receive only crumbs !
