How do you choose a theme or subject? I will encourage my students to choose something they are passionate about. It may take some thought and soul searching but it will be worth it. One of the ways I choose subjects for a potential series is by looking through the plein air studies I do on a trip. I love painting small studies.....especially the quick 2.5x3.5 studies. These often best capture how I feel about a place. They make excellent inspiration for a series of larger paintings.
