I’ve had my share of periods notoriously known as “Artist’s Block”, very similar to what writers experience when the desire is there but the ideas are not. It happens to all creative people sooner or later. I’m not exactly sure what cleared my block but I do know that meditating, walking in nature, going on field trips to fun places, & surrounding myself with positive people contributed to the shift inside of me.
I now have the opposite problem, a wonderful, energy-charged problem– too many ideas & too little time. Please don’t misunderstand, I’m not complaining. Far from it! I’m humble & grateful for this flow of inspiration that has sprinkled my studio with canvases, blocks of wood, & art journals in various stages of completion. What’s an artist to do?! You might say, “Finish them, Silly!” And I will. But right now, I feel like a child with too many toys on Christmas morning. What do I play with first?
