October Inspiration


1. Piet Mondrian’s grid-like paintings

“Illness is the night-side of life, a more onerous citizenship. Everyone who is born holds dual citizenship, in the kingdom of the well and in the kingdom of the sick. Although we prefer to use only the good passport, sooner or later each of us is obliged, at least for a spell, to identify ourselves as citizens of that other place.” 

2. Illness as Metaphor by Susan Sontag


3. Jean-Michel Basquiat’s bright colors and stylized figures


4. Meredith Woolnough’s embroideries


5. Sean Scully’s block paintings


6. Science Festival activities (The museum I work at participated in a science festival and one of the activities we did with the visitors was painting with watercolors and cooking oil. I loved the results so much that I bought the materials and used them in my own work!)
