One of the themes here at Creative Influences is creativity influencing creativity. I don't know why I do what I do, I just know that I have to. A new painting always has many influences.
There's the music. Music is a very important part of what I do. This time it was Anthony Hamilton.
Then there's usually a painting by another artist that I am intrigued by. This time it was this painting in the "House that Hollywood Built" at PointClickHome.
Even though the theme for this room is macabre, I love the painting. I've always wanted to do a painting with a cutout.
