Not to sound redundant, but you know how much I like the work of David Hockney. One of my favorite pieces of his is A Bigger Splash, painted in 1967. While waiting for inspiration to come for my next painting, I pulled out a book of Hockney's paintings and marveled again at Bigger Splash and its brilliant simplicity. A few minutes later I found my hands busily creating a digital painting of it. It began as a practice exercise to keep nimble while awaiting inspiration but soon I was delightedly involved and feeling as though I were swimming along through his painting on that bright California day.

Some art notes of interest: Art San Diego, sponsored by UBS, was held last weekend. It was a wonderful experience that brought high-quality contemporary art galleries from across the U.S. and abroad to the Hilton Bayfront for 3 days. I highly recommend planning any trips to San Diego around this annual Art San Diego Fair. The event was part of September's Arts Month San Diego .
