I’ve been quietly struggling with my art lately. For some reason, I’m adrift. I’m not clear about what direction I’m going, what I’m trying to learn, or what’s the next challenge. And one thing I know about myself, I need learning and challenge as part of my creative process.
So… I slowly continue to create. To look at the world around me and see what catches my eye. I’m waiting for inspiration to show me the way.
This one came along yesterday, and I love it.
But it feels as if I had to be dragged kicking and screaming along the entire way. It’s as if inspiration reluctantly showed up for a moment, then ran away. “That’s all you get,” Inspiration says, “I’m outta here.” No clues left as to how to get it to stay.
So, dear blog friends, I’m looking for a diagnosis, and a cure. What’s wrong with me? Is it the seasonal blahs? Is it a creative rut? What will get me out of this funk?
All I know how to do is keep creating. If I keep creating, maybe Inspiration will stick around long enough to show me the way.
