This is an excellent question right now! Because while I’m not in a block as such, I feel like I’m disengaged with my projects. It could be some apathy I’ve been feeling from other things – work, health, personal dramas – and this is bleeding into my art. Or maybe I am just run down and need a break longer than a few days.
I try to push myself in a lot of things I do. I must improve my skills or I fear I will lose them. But I can see this isn’t making me very happy and I’m losing some of the joy I get from my art and creativity. I thought switching up my projects might help and also made a small animation.
I have a notebook I write my ideas for posts and different projects in and I have a few to get started on. I got some new items for a Tim Holtz shadow box, some ideas for Fimo clay charms and a frame box. But while I have ideas, I don’t seem to have the motivation to get started. Does anyone else ever get this? What would you suggest as a sort of remedy? A holiday in the Maldives perhaps?! Anyway this is my current update, more on my mood than art….
