What does an artist do when he or she is feeling “stuck” on a piece of art? I’m sure there are as many answers as there are artists. One thing that seems to work for me is a tip I read a few years ago in Mati Rose McDonough’s lovely book, “Daring Adventures in Paint”. The advice she received from a valued mentor when she was in an art-slump was to make art that came easily and felt natural for her. I figured that it might help in my situation, too.
The next question I asked myself was just that…what kind of art do I find easy and fun to make? The answer was simple. I love making “word art”. I love creating inspiring words or phrases with fun colors and no pressure to create the right composition or balance of values.
So, taking a little break from creating floral art, I revisited one of my favorite phrases.
What do you do when you’re stuck on a piece of art (or in an art-slump)? I’d love to hear what works for you.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
Have a happy Saturday,
