Perhaps it’s as simple as the instrument you play or the brushes you use, or as esoteric as a leaf from the tree you always compose under, or the book you read to inspire your writing, or the mug you use when burning the midnight oil, churning over an idea.
We hope to have many more photo shoots planned throughout the year and into 2016. Be sure to stay tuned here on the Art Lives Here blog where we’ll announce dates first!
