There is a lot we have to juggle in our lives. As I think I’ve told you before, I have a list to keep track of my to-do lists because there are so many little details swirling around in my head. I know it is pretty much the same for you. But I also know that when I am inspired, it is like the clocks stop. Time switches off and I just plunge in. I love that feeling! It’s what keeps my creative energy revved up and ready to go. Inspiration overcomes any barrier, but sometimes it needs a little help.

If you feel like you could use a jolt of the kind of inspiration I’m talking about, Inspired might be the unique resource for you. An online fine arts magazine, Inspired features instruction from noted artists working in oil, watermedia, pastel, and more. With just a few clicks, I have tons of creativity at my fingertips. I especially love the video tutorials on techniques because there is nothing like seeing what you are being taught by someone actually doing it.
