No They Aren't Pumpkins

People often wonder what inspires artists. The brooms were inspired by a broom maker who posts to my Facebook stream.  Next came the ankhs, my current obsession, then my eye fell upon the coyote gourds sitting on my piano, that were a gift from my boyfriend years ago.  Somehow those reminded me of the desert and paleo art, which reminded me of geckos. The bow tie shapes on the geckos were a Celtic rune, but once I filled them in they reminded me of geckos with bow ties. Then all I had left was one big empty triangle which seemed a logical spot to draw more triangles.
