two horses came by, an artist's inspiration

wandering around town
It's alway an inspiration to learn how writers and artists come up with ideas, especially when ideas happen to appear out your window.

Last week two horses wandered along a dirt road in rural Idaho. They stopped to graze in front of Cody Rutty's studio, just as he looked outside. He snapped this photo [left] then started painting. His time-lapse video of the process is really cool:

Cody's illustrations are in several of my books, and he'll be doing my latest. Meanwhile, I can't wait to see his next inspiration!
