artful inspiration. . .
on Friday, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to view the Picasso exhibit at the Philadelphia Art Museum.
The Art Museum is always a favorite trip of mine - I think of myself as "creative" but not "artistic". The museum is an endless supply of inspiration and the Picasso exhibit did not disappoint.
While I am not a modern art "fan" - or very knowledgeable of Picasso - I found the audio tour fascinating. Strolling from work to work - works created by Picasso himself, or works inspired by him provided an endless supply of inspiration.
I tried to look at it from a scrapbooker's viewpoint. How could I apply the techniques used by Picasso - to my memory keeping at home?
Here are some of my notes: (ignore the silly note about the flaming shots - listening to the audio tape - that's the picture that popped into my mind)
I am planning to create a few pages - I have a collage in mind as well, based on these notes.
Have you seen the exhibit? If so - leave me a comment telling me if it inspired you and how. If you haven't - what are your thoughts on using other's work (even famous artists) to inspire your own creativity?
Be sure to swing by the Picasso Blog for some eye candy, inspiration and information.
catch you soon -
disclosure: The Philadelphia Museum of Art provided me with admission to the Picasso exhibit. I was not compensated financially for this post.
