Sudden inspiration


Suddenly! Inspiration sends the artist hurrying off for a


a brush,

or some clay.


The artist in the mist of an ‘Art attack.’


For every artist knows that inspiration can only last so long.

In just moments, -or even within the twinkle of an eye, - it could all be gone.


For ‘inspiration’ is like a train at a railway station,

it’s all aboard before the whistle blows.


Art is always about seizing the moment.

And then running with it.
