Inspiration is a special subset of life influences, the ones that feels like magic. One of my first oh-my-magical influences was the artwork of Norman Rockwell. His ability to create the illusion of 3-dimension on a 2-dimensional surface was a trick I still feel compelled to master. His work was recently exhibited at the Denver Art Museum. I was as enchanted as I was at age 13 - more so because I understood the painter behind the illustrator.
