My Mind is Scattered!! Really?

No, your not missing anything, there is no post of a painting, drawing, even a doodle. My mind the past few days is scattered, lack of concentration , motivation, inspiration..We all go through it, I know , and think it will never pass. I've had these times where it lasted for weeks,months and one time for 3 years. ... I think maybe tomorrow I'll paint a poppy, that always puts me in a good frame of mind and maybe the beginning of something .. We'll see..

  1. For me, there has to be a minimum of worrying going on for me to be able to delve into my artistic endeavors. When stressed and worried, I have such a hard time with motivation myself. I keep telling myself right now that there is nothing keeping me from it but me and what else is there to do? So it goes...slowly...

  2. I have been there too, I am sure the phase will pass. When I dont feel good, I hate that I can paint, because I cant bring myself to paint and I am on a guilt trip! Get well soon!

  3. Sometimes I'm in that place for no good reason at all! But hang in there, it will pass. Starting with something you love to do will indeed be a catalyst. Just allow yourself some time to play.

  4. interestingly enough I asked my painting teacher just this Thursday "what do you do when you have mental block". He said Devotion is the key. Everyday go to your drawing/painting area and clean up, rearrange, look at resources, read an art article, do what ever, but do it in the designated art area.
    I thought that was good advice.

    Thanks so much for the painting.. I LUV it!
