I started The Artists Way study course a week ago. I really hated having to do the three morning pages everyday. It's supposed to be a stream of consciousness thing but I couldn't get into it. Then about three days ago I switched to short stories and now I look forward to it. I have written four so far and in them I could see the skeletons of actual stories possible to develop.
I'm still in a dry spell on painting but not a total loss. I created three this week and only one of them totally sucks. The horse sucks. I then started thinking about why I'm sorta bored with the abstracts that I've been doing. I'm stuck and I need new fuel and inspiration.
I created a visual alphabet of the common elements of my paintings which helped me see my style a bit better. It's random.
Just like my morning page changes when I found my voice to storytell, I feel my paintings will change when I find my next burst of inspiration. I've been painting intuitively but now, I'm ready to clarify my voice and plan.
Unfortunately, I'm still on the dry bank and going nowhere for the moment...it's ok... I must press on!
