Recently I have been fascinated and inspired by the leftover dried up paint on my palette when I am finished with a painting. I caught myself one day in a moment of wonder while throwing the congealed mess away after I peeled it up off my plate. I pulled it back out of the trash and looked at it. It was a pure representation of my process in art. It showed decisions (both good and bad) that I made in the moment of painting. It showed my mistakes and my apologies to the piece I labored over. It held so much emotion of my process, and I couldnt believe I had been throwing these away. So now I am collecting them, to make something else truly emotional and beautiful from the left over mess I created. I am looking at them in a different way, and seeing beauty and possibility in what would normally be seen as garbage.
What can you find beauty and inspiration in today that no one else would have noticed?
