For years, I took part in the Inspired Sunday blog hop, but it no longer exists. Sometimes I still like to post something inspiring for Sunday. Today I thought maybe artificial intelligence (AI) could produce something from the word inspiration. What images might I get? 

I tried the free image generators StarryAI, Dream by Wombo, and NightCafe. I tried various styles, and none of them really satisfied me. This first one was not bad.

Several looked like an apocalyptic fantasy, and some had a disturbing detail. There were some nice skies, but I have real photos that have more inspiring skies.

I combined the rest of the images using PhotoCollage to keep this from being an overly long post. If nothing else, you can see the AI can emulate a variety of art styles. I don’t find the images to be as inspiring as what real artists can produce.

  1. ...I think the real deal.

  2. AI is in its infancy. You wonder what it will be able to produce five years from now.

  3. Hello,

  4. Wow!!! Luv tge vibrant colours in your mosiac.

  5. In the first set of AI art work I could see some of them being used for Fantasy book covers. I could also see some of the abstract works in the collage being done by a human. I haven't tried noodling around with AI - yet. Alana
