We intended to watch the movie "Raiders of the Lost Ark" after that, but after three hours of special features, we ran out of time for the movie itself. Isn't that funny?
Anyway, never let it be doubted that what I watch and read has a direct impact on what I make in the studio.
It's always interesting to me what my eyes and hands decide to combine.
But when I saw a large cross-like script textured emblem with a setting in the center, and a scarab beetle, it wasn't hard to tell where that imagery was sparked. Remember the knight templar in the last movie about the holy grail? And the egyptian features in the first movie?
The large ornate portrait of a very proper little gentleman with the word "DARE" inside was just one of those joking play on words. Double dare you to mess up that fancy suit!
And the nichos with the milagros that Pattie sent me - don't they look intriging together?
Overall it was a very productive studio session. It didn't hurt anything that the weather was pleasant and I wasn't bundled up like an eskimo yet, to keep from freezing. It gets really COLD in the basement!
So - I wonder what movie I should watch next! and then wait to see how it affect the creativity in the studio.
Does this happen to you? Or am I the only one who seems to be just a conduit from my unconscious mind to my fingertips ...
