What inspires and motivates you? I am curious so hope you all respond with comments to this post. As an artist, I find inspiration in a variety of things. A child seeing something and laughing uproariously; a sunset that takes your breath away; a flower bud on a seemingly lifeless tree. But there are times that livingness seems to impinge so heavily it is hard to see an inspiration anywhere. It is times like these that I look to my quotes on one wall of my studio. I have collected several quotes that spoke to me in some manner and it is in these times lacking inspiration that I read and reread them to remind myself of why I create art.

But the artist is not the only person that needs inspiration and motivation, we all do. So what is the inspiration for what you do, and what is it you turn to for motivation in those times when you just seem not to want to do it?
