Today was a good painting day…as opposed to the non-existent painting days of the last week. Canvas #12 had stalled and was sitting – forlornly – on the easel, taunting me. Not knowing how to proceed I left it, contemplating putting the canvas in a corner and starting on another one until the solution of how to proceed would rise up and tap me on the shoulder.
After writing today’s blog, I had to give myself a kick. I wrote that you can’t dig yourself out of the creative doldrums unless you do something different…so I got the paint out and did something different and I got it finished. Sometimes it is worthwhile taking a measure of your own advice!
