At any rate, I made a batch of gluten-free blueberry muffins the other day to cheer my husband up when he got home from work, but stopped myself (for a quick photo shoot of course:) as I was about to put the tray in the oven. Yes, I "got lost" in the batter for a while. I suddenly found the way frozen blueberries bleed into creamy white batter intoxicating and the texture of coarse brown sugar contrasting against the delicate batter beneath them inspiring. Perhaps that sounds dramatic, but I find there is inspiration to be found in every minute of the day that can so easily go unnoticed. Take a look around…the color palette and texture of a fruit salad could inspire a painting, a snack could become a beautiful photograph that will hang in a gallery someday, or you could just find yourself with a deeper sense of appreciation for the natural wonders that are all around us.
I did a quick search of my blog today and started compiling a running list of sources of inspiration (although I'm sure I missed a few). Check out this list for a quick hit of inspiration:
