We all go through it, don't we?
I seem to have a spout of it after finishing a piece that I particulrly am excited about... so ever since I finished my large portrait with the rocks and concrete (still yet to name it), I've been STUCK, which you can tell by my lack of new artwork on this blog.
The good thing is, I've finally figured out I am in this rut... so I am ready with my usual plan of attack. I'm going to switch gears again form doing the portraits and work on a still-life. Better yet, a still-life I don't have to compose, because I have a couple I composed already in waiting. I switch gears because for me, I think artists block is a lack of confidence that the next piece won't be as good. That I've used up all my art mojo and that's it - there's nothing left! I was so into this feeling the other day I had to review some of my own wip's to make sure I knew how I even DID a portrait, as for some reason I felt I had forgotten!
So, that's it... I need to do a still-life before the next portrait and get my ego back to a nice even level before attacking a portrait again. Yikes... so soon I will have something for you all to see agin!
On another topic, since the election was over I finally got to bring my Obama portrait to the Monadnock Fine Art Gallery where it is in the window on display... and already I've heard quite a lot of feedback about it!
Now HOW did I do that portrait again...sigh....
