Walking through the city on a sunny beautiful Spring day is a perfect way to get inspiration.

This water feature is in San Francisco.

This one is in the Palacio del Generalife in La Alhambra in Granada, Spain.  You can sort of figure out where the SF fountain might have gotten its inspiration from, don't you?

Nice ironwork at a Mexican restaurant.

A nice sculpture on the street.  And hey, it looks like the same artist also did the sconces on the same building.

And finally where else are you going to find 3 giant dog heads on wheels!!  Now if that doesn't give you inspiration I don't know what will!!
