My Inspiration for October II

31 Oct

This month I’ve been inspired by The Smiths, Joy Division, Jane Eyre, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Ann Bronte, Poe’s biography, Autumn landscape, films An Education (2009) and Control (2007) – about Ian Curtis, brilliant by the way, Caspar David Friedrich, Grimshaw and Antoine Watteau, old ruins, castles, Henry Fuseli, Andre Breton and a poem called ‘Horseman’s Song’ by Lorca.

I’m sad that October’s gone, and I’m kind of struggling to find something inspirational in November. It’s just such a bleak month, not in a cool way!
