Devine Inspiration

Had to pass this image along, the beauty of stained glass of old captured near the Art Institute in Chicago. Many early windows, with religious themes, designed to tell stories and inspire those who witnessed the work. So, ask the artist within: what meaning does your work have? What are you trying to communicate? It can be as simple an answer as: “I want these colors to make people feel happy”. I think if we think of our work as a way to communicate, we answer the question “why should I do this,” and we understand why our artwork matters! Enjoy!
