“Action on Inspiration”
As I mentioned in last month’s newsletter, I combined my 2 passions ,Art and Horses, into my art business name.
In a recent conversation with a friend I realized that I really do take steps and efforts to incorporate each into my life. It’s not just business. It’s having these things in my life that fulfills me.
I work part-time on a horse farm in the mornings. I do love the barn environment and feeling close to horses and nature. I feel connected to what’s around me.
I also have been enjoying eating my lunch at the farm when I’m done. I can sit near the outdoor arena and watch horses being ridden. I can just relax and gaze over the farm land of grass hills and trees that line the property. I can gaze up at the sky above.
In these moments I’m observing and thinking about things. I find myself thinking about images and being inspired by what’s around me. It’s these things that may find themselves into one of my art works.
You can’t just sit home waiting for inspiration to happen. It’s takes action. Going some place, doing something, and being out there — that will lead you to finding what inspires you.
So get out there. Explore and get inspired.

Several artists in the Equine Art Guild were a part of this unique tribute to the horse. Click on the image above to read all about it and the artists who participated in it’s creation, as well as see where it will be coming to a location near you in the coming year!
Darla Dixon organized a group of artists who will create no-charge compassionate portraits for the families who have lost a loved one in Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom. We are looking for artists to join our efforts, and also for non-artists who will help spread the word about this free service and token of our gratitude to families who have sacrificed so much.”
