Way back when, in the beginnings of RMH, I did a post dealing with my personal (& in most cases private) method for breaking through a creative impasse. It involved using art that I found interesting, usually traditional Asian pieces & then doing my own versions ~ not copies per se, more like meditations. At the time several readers asked to see the original to make a comparison but it was from a book that was too large to fit on my scanner & I couldn't find a decent example on line example.
I have since found one.
It's from The Metropolitan Museum in New York.
