so! you got the blues. you can’t work. you lost the enthusiasm. you wonder what ever made you think you are an artist. the nightmare of every creative individual!

how do you get over, around, past or through that horrible slump?
here are a few things that i do. and i look forward to any ideas y’all have and want to share.

1 – sometimes i just let it slump. wallow in it. forgive it and do something else. my creative mind needs a vacation, too
2 – work in another medium. one i don’t know much about, so i don’t have to be perfect. the photo above is papier mache. the materials are cheap so i didn’t have to go out and buy a bunch of stuff.
3 – do kid’s crafts – little kits that i buy at the dollar store and just play around.
4 – have a fellow art friend come over and create together.
5 – go on a photography field trip. even just using my iphone. no hassle, no complicated equipment. i stimulate my vision and remind my muse why it is we do this thing called art.

i would love it if any of you are willing to reach out to us other artists and share your thoughts about this. i wish you many creative days and nights and an endless flow of new ideas and inspirations.
