Birthday Suit

8x6" oil on canvas, $135

I am often asked where I get my inspiration. I think inspiration is a mysterious and fuzzy concept to artists and non-artists (normal people?) alike. One of my favorite artists, Chuck Close, has this to say on the subject: "Inspiration is for amateurs. The rest of us just show up and get to work." Amen to that!

This is just lovely Brenda. I love the way the little character is hugging its stomach and showing off its tummy button. Beautiful.

I've never heard it called a "Tummy Button"--that's so great! Thanks for stopping by, Vivienne!
