Where does the inspiration come from?

Where do I start.  As you know I have a real love for colour, rich bright and beautiful background colours that make a massive statement in any home.  I love to play with colour in all the artwork I create.  Pastels are probably my favourties to work with and creating pretty floral pieces complimented by soft aqua and purples tones.   This piece however is on the other scale.  Its an original canvas painting created on a whoping 1.8 x 900m canvas.  Rich colours derived from the beautiful coral and marine life up with Whitsundays.  I was pretty fortunate to sail around the Whitsundays for my 50th birthday and we spent plenty of fun times exploring the underwater sea life.   i find for me my inspiration is just appreciating the moment, thinking and pondering that actual moment in time.  Each morning I wake to Kookaburras so they are definitely one of my primary themes at the moment.  Tell me your story about what inspires your creativity.
