The inspiration for this image, came from a series of photos that I took in San Gimignano, Tudcany, Italy – Dec, 05. ( Perhaps, 6-8 photos as the source of inspiration, to build my composition for the painting ) . For me inspiration, is a living power that is inside of me, sensing all kind of sources. Inspiration can come from what I see, feel… hear, taste, touch… and MORE… Inspiration is a powerful power, which immediately produce the WILL TO CREATE… The creation might come immediately, but also, some time after…even years after. Usually my inspiration come from myself, what I sense… Yet, some times I also enjoy inspiration that come from some other photographers for example, like places , that the chance I’ll visit is low… especially that minute of the inspiration. (although there is always such chance :-). During about 24 years and even more of creating, MANY People, artists, took / take the inspiration from ME too ( Many of my AW friends also :-) I find it today, as flattering to know I influence people. I think one beauty of the internet, that you can view so many art and photos from all over the world, and get even more sources of INSPIRATION. I always have SO much more inspiration inside of me, then I really HAVING ENOUGH TIME ,TO CREATE IT ALL. About this post..once more : " Some of your paintings are like 6 – 8 paintings "… Well inspired by this saying, I decided to make several images out of my Oil painting – " Twilight Time in San Gimignano ". Each image is about 1/6 of the original painting. The original painting , by the way took about 2 full month to paint (100 CM X 70 CM ). Few of these images are now available to purchase, as several products, in my RB portfolio . Thanks for viewing and commenting. May we ALL have a delightful loving day !! Copyrights © Nira Dabush.
