Sometimes I just feel like painting and drawing. I think it comes and goes. Nowadays I just don't think there is ever any energy or suitable time for it, but I wish that I would do it more. At least I get somewhat inspired when I look into this Danish home, styled by Rikke Graaf, and found on her blog Ellens album. Lovely picture. I like to find an idea, then imitate it and change it to my own (following the device "Good artists copy, great artists steal" - expressed by Picasso). Here I love the hair of the big painting. Somehow cool...
I also like collecting all kinds of funny, nice sketches or special art pieces that you can put into frames. I try to look for them whenever I am away somewhere in a new place or shop, on summer markets and flea markets. Never underestimate local illustrators. You can find individual pieces that does not hang in everybody else's home.
I also liked the glass jars (in the same home) with painted letters in pink. I would not mind to have the tranebær glass jar (cranberry). I like the word and Danish spelling and not the least the pink text and I think it would just be quite delicious to have that much berries in my cupboard to put on the muesli every morning.

What inspires you? Where do you find or see art? And if you paint or draw, where do you find inspiration? I think art is everywhere. It can just be as simple as a painted glass jar in the kitchen cupboard.
