What makes you want to paint?

What makes you want to paint? What should you paint?    I recently read a magazine article where the artist said paint what you like and chances are someone else will like it too.  I don't remember the artist (sorry) but I think it's a good way to approach what we paint.

I am often inspired by my friend's garden.  It's an unusual garden with hidden corners and vintage objects given new uses or just displayed because they remind my friend of her parents and childhood.  The above painting is a group of old jugs with a jam jar of flowers was just outside the back door.




 These are just a few of my other paintings inspired by sunny mornings or afternoons spent with my painting friends in the garden ...there are many more!
