Stalled Out

This past month has not been productive for me at all. I have ideas but seem to lack the motivation to carry them out. This is different than artist's block. It's something else. What, I don't know. Sometimes I never know what is getting in my way until after it passes. Then I look back and wonder why I didn't see the problem before.

Yesterday I did finally pick up a brush and do a quick floral in hopes it would get my artistic juices flowing again. Maybe I should consider doing a painting a day. Just something simple to jump start myself. Maybe I will continue to paint foxgloves until I feel I have mastered them or until I get tired of painting foxgloves.

That period in the winter is always hard for inspiration. I know many artists who have the same challenge. You just gotta push through it.

These foxgloves are a perfect way to push winter aside. Beautiful! I have a cropped close up of some white foxgloves and strong shadows that you'd do way more justice to than I ever would. Perhaps a challenge might get your juices going again...hmm

A challenge would be good, Jeanette.:) It just might work!
