Knowing an Artist... John Cleaveland

"My muse is painting the way the world hits my eye, 
The thought that I should say something in a way that at the same time makes sense and ask questions.
The urge to create.
The voice that whispers in my ear
You have not done

 quote by John Cleaveland  on what is your muse?

John is an amazing artist that is a friend of ours.   This morning I asked him about his muse and he answered this.  I thought it was worthy of sharing with all of you.  He is a true artist..the real kind.  that creates art...

We have one of his paintings hanging in our family room.  I do love his houses...

I just wanted to share with y'all what a real artist thinks.  the process of creating...  Hoping that this sparks some creativity in you too...

There is a whole lot more depth to John, but this is enough to introduce you to him....

I hope you have a great weekend.  Go and create something...Let's make this world a more beautiful place...
Thanks John for your amazing work...and for keeping on keeping on....

I am joining in at Rattlebridge Farm      come visit...


  1. Thanks so much Mona, for this great post and meeting John. Great work.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Now I must do a little research. I like homes and buildings represented in art, too. The Cleveland you have is very nice.
