As I explained in my last blog post, I recently had spinal surgery. Right after surgery, the only thing that helped relieve pain was laying down so I spent a lot of time on a make shift bed that we put in the middle of the living room. While I couldn’t move and do many of the things I like to do, I did LOVE checking my phone… instagram! How I love instagram! This is the best social media app for anyone who enjoys visual communication and beautiful images. I have found so much inspiring art from around the world! Being an artist, it has been a fun way to build an online community and find inspiration. While I couldn’t get around and create art myself, I was able to still feel creative by getting daily art inspiration and add positive creativity to my life in an indirect way!
How did I find so many amazing artists on instagram? I searched by hashtag, for example: #doodle, #art #drawing, etc. Once you follow a few artists, you can see what images they liked. Click on those images and find other artists that you may be interested in following.
While there are a gazillion accounts with incredible art and photography, I especially enjoy following these ten accounts (not in any particular order):
I would encourage you to check out these artists and follow them!
