The “Stuck” Artist…AKA, Me.

So, there comes a time when the creative energy seems to desert an artist, and it seems to have deserted me.  I have a pile of projects that I have begun, and everyday I walk past them and think to myself, “I’m going to do something with that today,” but I do not know what it is that I should do with them.

I see other artists busily creating and showing and selling their works, and I think, “I could do that too,” but when it I get home and try to imagine how and what I would create, zilch.

What is it that is in my psyche that does not want to move forward? Do I think too much?  Why am I stopping myself, since it must be my own doing as no one else is interested in whether I create or not?

I am going to grab one of my many incomplete art journals and a fine-point Sharpie and just start doodling…what ever flows out of the pen will be fine. Perhaps that will help to get my brain into the “Right” mode. That is what I have heard, that one must be in the right-side-of-the-brain-mode in order to create.  Apparently, I am in left-field.

I will let you know, and if I am successful, I will have, finally, some new art works or crafts to display.

How do you keep your creative juices flowing?  Please, no walk-in-the-rain-with-my-sweetheart stuff. Does anybody ever really walk in the rain with their partner as a romantic moment?
