What Inspires Your Art Work?

Recently we asked the fans from Facebook what questions they had for Greg.  We received a number of questions and decided to shoot video of Greg’s responses.  In this short video Susan Clemons asks, “What inspires your art work?  The goofy looking guy asking the questions on the left is myself, Chad Field.  I’m Greg’s son-in-law.  We hope you enjoy the video and plan on doing more video responses in the future.  Please let us know what you think.  Hopefully this video will inspire you to ask additional questions in order to get to know Greg and his art work a little better.

  1. I guess inspiration is the same for all of us. I can get inspiration from many sources. One day a friend told me that her husband didn’t want to go at warp speed anymore…and I wrote a poem about that:

    I don’t want to go at warp speed anymore,
    my body is old and my muscles are sore.
    And though my mind is still sharp as tacks,
    when I bend to get down I can’t seem to get back.

    I know that I used to be quite on the go
    but lately my speed is always on slow.
    My eyes need glasses, my teeth need a jar
    I need a soft seat when I ride in a car.

    So let me lay down and rest for a while
    I feel like the turtle who just ran the mile.
    I don’t care what others may think of this plan
    ’cause I’ve reached the age
    ……………….where I don’t give a d_ _n.

    Thank you, Greg, for your beautiful and inspiring artwork…and thank you for the generosity you show in sharing it with all of us.


  2. My brother suggested I might like this website. He was totally right.
    This post actually made my day. You can not imagine simply how much time I had spent for this info!

  3. After I initially commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on every time a
    comment is added I recieve four emails with the same comment.

    There has to be a means you can remove me from that service?

    Many thanks!

  4. magnificent points altogether, you just received a new reader.
    What might you suggest in regards to your publish that
    you made a few days in the past? Any sure?

  5. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this
    onto a coworker who had been doing a little homework on this.
    And he in fact bought me dinner simply because I discovered
    it for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the
    meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending the time to discuss
    this topic here on your web site.

  6. I don’t know if it’s just me or if everyone else encountering
    problems with your website. It appears like some of the written text within your content are running off
    the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This could be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen previously.

    Thank you

  7. I have been browsing online more than three hours as of late,
    but I by no means found any fascinating article like yours.
    It’s lovely price sufficient for me. In my view, if
    all webmasters and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the net
    can be much more useful than ever before.

  8. Hmm is anyone else having problems with the pictures on this blog loading?

    I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  9. Hi there! This blog post couldn’t be written any better!
    Looking through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He constantly kept preaching about this. I most certainly will send this post to
    him. Pretty sure he will have a great read. Thanks for sharing!

  10. Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to
    assist with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to
    get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good gains.
    If you know of any please share. Kudos!

  11. I just couldn’t depart your site prior to suggesting that I really enjoyed the usual info an individual supply in your guests?
    Is going to be back regularly to investigate cross-check new posts

  12. It is not my first time to pay a quick visit this web site, i am browsing this web site dailly
    and take nice data from here everyday.

  13. I’m not that much of a online reader to be honest but your sites really nice,
    keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your site to come back down the road.

  14. I do accept as true with all of the ideas
    you have introduced in your post. They are really convincing and can definitely
    work. Still, the posts are very brief for beginners.
    Could you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time?

    Thanks for the post.
