I love art, in any shape, form and media. I practice some sort of art every day. My inspiration comes from some of my favorite artists, such as Jeanne Oliver at http://jeanneoliverdesigns.com/blog, Danielle Donaldson at http://danielledonaldson.com/creativepracticing/, Alisa Burke, Amy Hanna, Robin Dudley-Howe, Roben Marie Smith and many more. I have learned to refine what I already know through these ladies by paying to take classes from them. They are all inspiration to create. But to me they are teaching me so I can sell my own work or teach my own classes so more people can do what I have learned. I am a teacher, and that is what I do, teach. Teachers help to carry others into the realm of possibilities, to inspire and to then watch their students become successful without getting jealous of their successes. I am not copyrighting my teachers when I take what they taught me by choice and use the information to teach others. I am copy writing when I take word for word or jot and tittle, stroke for stroke, identical and you can't tell the real from the fake and say it is my own. I believe if you are a teacher and you don't want to see "your" techniques recreated and retaught, then you shouldn't be a teacher. I understand about the exact duplication thing, that's just not cool, but the Bible has some great insight to this very matter and is a great source of wisdom and it says Ecclesiastes 1:9 "That which has been is that which will be, And that which has been done is that which will be done. So there is nothing new under the sun."
