Getting outdoors, clearing the cobwebs of the mind, trekking on a new parcel of beach or land — exploring is the greatest source of inspiration for me. When I get outside, into a new environment especially, I find all the juices recharge on their own and I can return to work as my best, most creative self. Cape Kiwanda on the Oregon Coast (as seen in the above photo) was particularly gorgeous during a recent day trip.
