"Abstracted Flowers", 16x20"
Creativity can be very fickle.
Since coming home from the holidays, I've been in my studio every day, struggling to bring a certain painting to life. It refuses to budge, and I leave the studio every day frustrated and down. Seems the harder I try to get this painting to work, the further it gets away from me.
Today, I decided to try a new course of action. I put the old painting away and took out a floral that I had started months ago but never finished. I started to paint with happy abandon, and this painting cooperated with me! It may not be to everyone's taste, but I was able to let the paint flow without over thinking it. I feel like I'm out of my creative rut, and that is indeed a good feeling.
