Hiya Mike,

My self portrait was inspired by Henri Fantin-Latour's portrait of Edouard Manet. As you can see by my portrait, I made some necessary changes to make it an original and my own. But the flavor of the Henri Fantin-Latour masterpiece is evident in my painting.

I have always loved the winter scenes by Joseph Farquharson with his bright sunsets and snow and some of my paintings show this i think.

steampunk is sort of a victorian neo science. blimps with big levers, moriarty, 2000 leagues under the sea, a number of other titles use steampunk. it's sort of like we had a war right after the victorian industrial age, and nothing else was invented. plastic, rubber, electricity, etc - never made. instead they rely on clockwork, fancy victorian themes, leather, belts and the like. it's an odd sub culture of technology.

I like the look of Man Rays' "rayographs" although, this is a straight photo of a reflection of a decorative clock in the sun.

Inspired by the character, Harry Haller from Hermann Hesse's novel Steppenwolf.
Also there is a touch of MC Escher including an impossible geometric construct within the composition.

I wouldn't say it's "inspired by" but this image reminds me of some of the amusement park images taken by Holga photographer, Michelle Bates.

Mike, I love the Starry Night Steampunk. Very nice. Also, I want to thank you for starting this thread. It reminded me of a shot that has been sitting on my hard drive for over a year. It was inspired by Ansel Adams, who did a similar shot--yes, in color.

I once entered a painting in a good, local art show. After the show was over I got a letter from a viewer who complained that a portion of my painting looked like a part from a Chagall painting. Now I never copied anything! So I did some lengthy research on Chagall and found a Sunday News section of a newspaper from many years ago, which had a Chagall painting shown, & did have some similarity to the viewers complaint of my work. I returned with an answer that I never used that, nor copied it and mine was not even painted similarly. So, do we retain images in our mind and they can come out in our art, even though we are not intending to copy another artist's work? Just a thought!

My stained glass orginal chapel installation was influenced, in part, by my admiration for Bertram Brooker (1888-1955). This multi-talented artist was the first Canadian to exhibit abstract art in Canada. He was closely associated with the Group of Seven, especially Lawren S. Harris.

His 'Sounds Assembling' painting -- exhibited in Toronto in 1927 -- was the first of his works I viewed in print, and later at the Winnipeg Art gallery.

Only the greatest artist of them all - who ever created this big blue marble with all it's beauty - that's my inspiration - I'm just a bad copyist.

As for my 'abstractions' - I haven't a clue - I used to wander the halls and rooms of museums - mostly disliking any and all "modern" art - and still do think that much of the, by definition, Modern Art stuff is junk - and not art at all - but made for the guppies that were afraid to say that it was junk - so they bought it to prove that they were 'in the know'. Now I create it myself - some is "pretty" and aesthetically pleasing, colorful, to the eye - some is probably "junk".

Inspired by the famous 'dust-bowl' era B&W photograph "Migrant Mother" by Dorothea Lange, this updated colorized version shows the central figure emerging not unscathed but still undefeated from an unidentifiable darkness swirling around her. The bathing light shows a face of strength, determination, and humanity. Grace, dignity, and femininity in the figure's pose seems to shake off the darkness. A timeless beauty, undiminished by the mars of suffering or the carving done by the obstacles of life.
