Palette knife art

Palette knife art

Palette knife painting is the tool of choice for few artists and the tool of uncertainty for others. The advocates claim it demonstrates confidence, the naysayers claim it wastes paint and is a form of ‘quickie painting’. What-ever your bent, the following... read more

Contemporary pottery has blossomed

Contemporary pottery has blossomed into the new millennium. I am entirely smitten with the adventurousness and uniqueness achieved by these these beautiful artworks. I really thought pottery had become a poor cousin to the fine white ceramics and evolution of glass... read more

Relaxing pink art exists

Relaxing pink art exists

Relaxing pink art exists! In hindsight of my art appreciation this week I noticed I had inadvertently selected a range of art which was relaxing, pink and somewhat odd. That discovery led me to explore a whole world of relaxing pink art .. surprisingly the concept is...
The art of antique jewelry

The art of antique jewelry

There is a unique master-craftsmanship appeal about antique jewelry, I sometimes feel this art has been lost to the higher cut polishes and finishes of today. The art of antique jewelry seems to embody an amazing appreciation for the raw material which is balanced...

Decorating in cowhide

Decorating in cowhide

How would you go about decorating in cowhide? Have you considered decorating in cowhide in your home to get that country feeling or a more earthy edge? After buying my new cowhide handbag the other day I was inspired to track down some of the best decorating in... read more

Creative inspiration

That Creative Feeling is an artists blog for creative inspiration by Australian sculpture Dina Goebel.

In starting this blog I wanted to capture what feeds me as an artist and hopes it inspires you to give it a go!

About Dina

“Women are looking for alternate ways to express themselves and satisfy their creative needs but often don’t know where to begin.”

Dina Goebel 2007

This is exactly what motivates me … helping others feel inspired about art and craft in their home.

Most of the public have no confidence to even begin being an artist! This blog, established in 2012, aims to enable women to experience the joy of creative inspiration in their own homes by role modelling the artistic possibilities within everyone’s reach.

Generally my work has been nature based, my creative inspiration comes as a suburban householder concerned about our natural environment.

For 7 years I did work full time as an artist and will return to the studio after my corporate career. In the meantime my artistic expression has never left me, be it in this blog, renovating my home or creating and exploring my own artistic style. That is because,

I AM ALWAYS THE ARTIST, Dina

Mastery of Ikebana both large and small

How extraordinarily simple and beautiful the art of ikebana is. As artists we can appreciate the incredible deep internalized expression of beauty coming from the hands of Grand Masters. It is amazing how long it takes to learn and achieve the utmost poignant... read more

A look at contemporary Aboriginal art

I adore contemporary Aboriginal art – its rich colors, movement, deeply rooted cultural expression and story telling. How wonderful an opportunity to be so embraced in a culture which can express itself on canvas with wonderful simplicity. The connection of the... read more

Art is in the eye of the beholder

So the saying goes ‘art is in the eye of the beholder’ … as there is definitely some odd art out there! I think the saying is a riff on ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’. This in itself originated during Ancient Greek times and has... read more

Abstract art for abstract sakes

I was really struggling with understanding the beauty of the very abstract, almost scribble like art … those types of drawings the viewer often thinks any 5 year old could achieve. In researching for this particular post I found the following explanation... read more
