I am researching Inspiration, The Divine Breath.
I am responding to a mystery. Apart from the work itself , this is the best language I can use to describe that response. This inspiration is ineffable but that does not mean one should not attempt to describe it to the viewer. As the root of the word suggests it may be perceived as a “Divine Breath” sourced outside of the artist’s personality that breathes life into the work. It is the “Aether” that inhabits the work. It is a way of being.
 
When we are inspired, thankfully, we do not rely upon ourselves alone.
