Inspiration - Melange Challange

This is my creation for the Melange Challenge. It really surprised me that it was as hard as it was for me to do something with the topic of "Inspiration". I sat and thought - "what inspires me?" I couldn't come up with one thing.... there were many things. Probably even more things that I could think of to add to this collage piece. Certain things inspire me more than others, of course. And there are also things that inspire me that I couldn't really show... But I guess the pictures give you a good idea of what inspires my life and creativity, and the words add to what inspires my art...

Thank you to everyone who lends their creative energy to keep me inspired and wanting to create art.

Here is the collage with out the words. A couple of people asked to see it, so I thought I would just post it, too.

Peace & Love,
