I never know what will inspire me, or when something in particular will grab my attention. On my recent trip to Brisbane I went into a store that I am familiar with because of instagram, Black and Spiro. It is a beautiful interiors shop, and I have since become a bit obsessed with something I found while I was there.
A piece of fabric was sitting on the counter. Upon enquiry I found out that it was the last bit they had in stock and it wasn’t for sale, and the usual retail price was $600 a metre. It was a beautiful fabric, (trust me to pick expensive, unavailable things). The assistant was kind enough to let me photograph it. I have been doing little drawings since, with the fabric as a reference. I can visualise these pots turning up in my paintings now.
What do you think? Where have you been inspired recently, and by what?
I’d love to hear your thoughts..
