In art class last week, we talked about what inspires an artist. An artist can be inspired by many things. Wayne Thiebaud is inspired by candy for example cakes, bubble gum machines, ice cream, cupcakes, smoothies, and lollipops. Other artists are inspired on their feelings as if they were sad they might paint something in blue. Artists are also inspired by weather. If the sun is setting in the ocean they might draw a sun setting in the ocean. That could also be landscape. Artists are inspired by memories of family or friends. The artist can draw a portrait of his/her brother or his/her mother or they could just draw their pet. Those are the many ways of what inspires an artist. If you like painting, then tell me what inspires you.
