|A combination of things has triggered an awful painter's block. I have several commission pieces that have being sitting waiting to either completed or just started all together. There have been many times when I struggled with a painting or two, but then I would go on with a new painting and that seemed to give me a better perspective when I went back to the previous ones. However, this has not been the case this time. No matter what painting I started, I couldn't finish it. So, I just stopped painting for a few weeks, which is very rare. |
Of course I missed playing with my brushes and paints dearly. So, in order to "fix" this block, I decided to just place whatever I grabbed first from my curio cabinet and combine them with some pears and roses (my favorites) and use these as props for still lifes with no plan. It was surprising how well it worked. Now, to get to commissions. Happy New Years to you and yours and thank you for being such a lovely part of my 2014.
