Finding Subject Matter

I got to thinking about those poor red winged black birds falling out of the sky in Arkansas, and decided to paint some living birds.  John J. Audubon I'm not, but it was challenging to try something out of my usual repertoire.

Sometimes it's a place or region of the country that inspires an artist.  Sometimes, it's a person, sometimes, an idea about art; sometimes it's wildlife, and sometimes it's an event.  Take the time to reflect on what it is that has captured your attention recently.  Maybe that will help with any painter's block you may be experiencing.
