Where do you go to for inspiration? When I am in that in-between state and at a loss for what to paint I mostly search through my photos to see if something says 'Paint Me!'. Another source of ideas is from older paintings and using them as a spring board for something different. Today's painting is one of those.t

Let me know where you get your inspiration from, and I will publish your answers and link to your work.

About the painting
Occasionally I make a foray into watercolour territory. I love watercolours, but not mine - I am never satisfied with the final result. When I look at them again some time later (often years) there is usually something in them that I can take further. Another good reason for using previous paintings is that you have already edited the scene, it so there is none of that annoying detail getting in the way.
