Sometimes I really have the urge to create. I want to make something. What that something is, I just don't know. I have been wanting to create pecan trees in winter. In fact, I have the base all painted on the background. It will be another piece completed with neutrals. But, I just can't bring myself to paint it. I have pictures and everything.
Then there is this other painting I want to create. An acquaintance of mine wants a garden over her bed. And, I've wanted to paint hollyhocks for quite some time now. What a perfect thing to do--to paint Kelly's garden with hollyhocks. Problem is, I just don't have the get up and go to do it.
I am currently sitting in my studio. I've got paint, brushes, canvases, and texture mediums. Yet still I sit here not doing anything. That isn't entirely true. I did just grab a bunch of colors I hadn't ever used and started to lay them down.
But now what. I've got 2 canvases, both with wonderful grounds to work on, but I'm stumped. Is it artist block? Obviously something is blocking me. What is it though? I hate when I get into these periods. It is super frustrating. I feel like I was moving a mile a minute on my artwork, and then Bam! Nothing. I just hope it ends soon.
In case you were wondering what I did tonight, here it is.
