Er...Inspiration?

Fireworks are one of those things that I absolutely love, but have never been sure about how I would go about illustrating them in a way that is new and special to my style... As with any other piece, I look at images and patterns of the colorful spectacles, imagining how I will go about creating one for myself...

Well, one of the most common questions I get at any Art Show is, "What is your inspiration...?" And as I thought about making a firework piece, having just celebrated the 4th, I have to laugh a little as I started looking into peoples different ways of crafting fireworks!

They are tough things to recreate, so kudos to these crafters for their imaginings! I was amused by all the different interpretations, so thought I would share my favorite versions...

Of course, there are the Bedazzled 'works...

I LOVE all of these ideas and am impressed with the variety! Inspiration abound, lets see what I can draw from these pieces to come up with my own idea to let the sparkly show begin!!!
