Inspiration. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines
inspiration “as a divine influence or action on a person believed to
qualify him or her to receive and communicate sacred revelation.” It
also says to be inspired is to be “outstanding or brilliant in a way or to a degree suggestive of divine inspiration.” With these definitions you would think that only an elite number of people would have this ability to be inspired. However, everyone can and is inspired at some point in their lives; you just have to be open to your surroundings and willing to trust your instincts. 

Artists, more often then not, allow themselves to be inspired more than anyone.
They look for inspiration in their everyday lives; the color of the sky
at sunset could inspire them to paint a mural; the shape of a petal
could lead them to create a sculpture. Fashion designers, like artists, often look for inspiration when designing their next fashion line.
