"Waiting" --- Sold

Click Here to Bid
Every time when I take an out of town trip, I always end up quite a few days I can’t paint. My work piles up in my office and lab. I need to catch up to be in sync with what is going on in the company. I have to work more hours to balance out my off days for my trip. When I finally come back to my studio. My mind is in the stage of a complete blank. If there would be no commitment of daily painting, I would have quitted painting a long time ago. I have to force myself to pick up a brush. Just paint something as a warm-up. I always say that you must have an idea before you paint. Well, it is not always true. I am waiting for my art sense to kick in.

I really like this. It turned out great and I hope it pulled you back into your painting, at least as much as you have time right now...

This is a lovely little piece and an interesting post. I find the same thing happens to me when I'm away and that for up to a week after returning I 'can't paint'. I try, but my natural ability takes a while to return. It's a relief to now other people experience the same things!

The colors pop in this piece with the neutral background. I think it is great!
Good luck getting back in the swing of things.

I use my photography to fill in time when I can't be in the studio painting. It serves me well in supplying me with innumerable things to paint that are original.
When I forget my camera and an interesting scene pops up I pull out the little sketch book I keep in my car. Maybe some of these ideas will help you move in the right direction. I'd love to have a big enough studio to be able to have one wall that I could paint and sketch on for inspiration.

where do you find all these neat things to paint?

well, while you were waiting for your 'art sense' a delightful painting popped out! simple composition, but really works... thank you!

i feel that same blank mind when i've not been able to paint for a while - i find the painting challenges really helpful for giving me direction - and they're kinda like a mini art course, too!
