All kinds of things inspire me when I paint. Of course the flowers themselves is more than enough to do that. But music always influences the way I paint things. I took a yoga training class a few weeks ago and they talked about the influence of music on our health. Then after watching a Ted Talk they were saying that not only hearing music but singing and dancing greatly improved our brain, our deposition and our health. So since i don't get enough exercise during the winter months I decided, at the suggestion of my friend Rochelle, to play Abba music on my phone and and just go wild and start dancing in the apartment. I discovered in the process that it dancing and singing to the music while no one else is nearby, is incredibly fun! And I am sure the neighbors in the building next store, I live in a high rise, are having an interesting time trying to figure out what I am up to.
