on growing pains…
after a huge creative burst last week, i hit a major creative wall on saturday. i sat. staring at my computer screen. frozen. nothing was coming out the way that i wanted it to. nothing. it felt so frustrating after so much was flowing for me. it was the crash after a major high.
but i suppose moments like those are just natural when you are going through major growing pains. i feel like i have been making huge leaps in my art lately. like creating this piece. it feels like everything i have ever learned or done in art is all coming together in a way that is just me. it feels so right.
but along with this huge growth, there are bound to be setbacks. moments where i must stop. regroup. rest.
so i took all of sunday to step away. do laundry. snuggle some babies. go grocery shopping. take care of family business.
i let go of trying too hard. waiting for my brain to get swept away on the next creative wave. such is the life of an artist. creativity ebbs and flows. and we have to be willing to wait for it to return.
here is a new piece that came out of waiting for it to return. i kind of love it.
by the way, i hope it’s alright that i am mostly just sharing new pieces right now. i feel like i just have to go where my creativity is taking me. so i thought i would just share that with all of you.
