I love to paint. I don't do it often and I don't think I'm good at it, but I still love it. How is that even possible? Well, though I know I'm not the greatest at painting, I admire other people who are spectacular at the skilled art. They know how to deliver every single stroke to make a masterpiece and they know how to take what they see onto paper or a canvas. Those people inspire me so much that I want to paint like them too. Though I know that I won't ever paint like them, it doesn't discourage me. I know that every artists in this whole entire world has a different way to portray their artwork. That's one of the reasons that I don't get let down, I have a unique way to portray my artwork and though it might not be through painting, it's still fun to try.
On one particular day, I was reading this blog post on 5 Reasons Why Every Creative Should Have an Instagram. This topic had captured me from the title, so I went on to read it. Later near the end of the post, I discovered this list of creatives that have an Instagram account. I saw one name that particularly intrigued me, so I clicked on her name (along with a few others, but they're for a later time).
Today, I'd like to introduce Julia Barminova, a beautiful watercolor painter. Instagram: juliabarminova
Julia Barminova does such beautiful paintings that her work inspires me to do my best with my art. That's how the cycle of inspiration works for me. I see one artists that I know they're doing their best with and I try to have that same conviction and love put into my art. Julia does everything with such care and detail, it actually looks like your looking at the real thing. But her artwork is still so unique. You see her style of her artwork. You also get to see the world around you and her with her paintings. It's beautiful how the process of inspiration works.
Now what's difficult about the inspiration process it to not get envious. Envy will lead you no where. Use what you've seen to build up stamina and creativity for you to start your own version of the world around you. Use your unique talent to let your unique version of artwork shine through. There's absolutely nothing you can't accomplish in this world.
We all have the ability to be our own unique person...
What inspires you?
