Just taking a snippet from The Owl and the Pussycat got me going. Looking at these first two canvases now, they are a bit clumsy, but, for posterity's sake, here they are, together with the quotes that inspired them.
The Owl and the Pussycat
|And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,|
They danced by the light of the moon.
Alice Through the Looking Glass
|Why, sometimes I've believed as many as|
six impossible things before breakfast.
(The White Queen)
I included the words on the canvas, and even back then was using found items, like broken jewellery and watch parts. The clay faces were made in moulds.
So, if you get stuck for inspiration, look at the written word, be it in literature, poetry, or song lyrics.
