‘What inspires you’ ?

I have lived in several different Countries, and you take away more than memories. Inspiration comes from more than sight; it’s sounds, smells and touch too. The difficulty is filtering what and how you use these inputs. Often colours seen abroad, sit incongruously and uncomfortably on UK walls. Paintings using those levels of vibrancy can look garish and you have to be careful how you use your inspiration. We just have been in Sicily and I looked for colour, pattern, different shapes. Now I shall give it time to let the images be and see how they translate into future possibilities.
