i think my creativity has flown out the window! (or perhaps gone down the gutter with all the rain we've been having.) things were going well before yesterday, i had so many ideas i had to write them all down. it all started yesterday with a painting that i just couldn't get to work, so i moved on to another which i finished today that i definitely don't like, which then i started working on a third and it's just not happening for me right now. even my photos i took didn't turn out. (this lily is from last week when things were flowing)
is it the moon? hormones? all this rain? i keep trying to force it by trying to come up with ideas, but this is really only making me more frustrated. i went back to my idea list but now they all feel so dull compared to a few days ago when they were filled with so many possibilities. this isn't anything new for me, my creativity goes in phases. to make it worse, i really feel like painting and drawing, but my brain feels as if it doesn't know what being creative means. arghh! my mother-in-law likes to say, "it is what it is." i guess this means i just have to accept it and wait it out, it too will pass.
