acrylic 2 feet x 4feet
Finally back painting again.It feels good.
I was in a little slump and I think it was because I was getting a little overwhelmed with outside influences and concerned about the direction my art was going.( and wanting to do and try everything). After a great lunch with an artist I totally respect and look up to, I feel much better about myself. I have realized two things 1) just paint...anything 2) if it's not broke don't fix it
I've just begun to market myself and make my mark...any drastic change could damage what I've worked hard to achieve. Self doubt is normal and it will pass if you don't let consume you.
My new found enthusiasm for my painting unfortunately will be short lived as I'm about to start my travelling holidays but I will stay positive and paint when I can. I am passionate again :)

I had a dream last night, that I painted 87 paintings by November. Would be nice, but I've been in a little bit of a slump. Painters Block, if you will. I'm not too worried, I know it'll pass. Having company and travelling doesn't help. I'll be away for three weeks in August and one week in Sept. I have shops coming up in Oct, Nov, and deadlines for Dec...I'll have to get physically motivated real soon. It's not that I haven't been thinking about it...I want to try something new and I've been trying to formulate it in my mind.
