Like a magpie
"I'm a magpie in my fiction, taking whatever looks shiny and curious to line the nest of my story." - Walter Kirn
Like Walter Kirn, I am drawn to the exciting and fascinating aspects of life, literature, art, and the world around us. Just as a magpie gathers various treasures to make a nest, art creates a fascinating and enriching story by gathering various ideas, inspirations, and experiences.
Art is about creating original combinations of ideas that weave different strands together to form a rich storytelling tapestry. Just as a magpie's nest is a testament to diverse tastes, a painting is a testament to the diverse influences that shape an artist's perspective and fuel their creativity.
