Inspired by a Poem

Where do you get the inspiration for your artwork?

This year I wanted to explore new opportunities and was juried into the Poet Artist Collaboration at the Crossings at Carnegie Gallery in Zumbrota, MN.  As an artist, I was challenged to interpret the writings of one of the poets selected. Incense and Nonsense was the title of my chosen poem. This led me to ponder how to visually show something as abstract as smell. The decay of flowers, the smell associated with a loved one, and the over-powering smell of incense found their way into this piece.

You can view the work of 26 artists and poets at the show. See how each artist collaborated to create a vision for original poetry.
