On Being Stuck
I’m stuck. Well, not completely, but stuck enough to put this one aside for a couple of days or longer if need be. I walk by and look at it sitting on the easel and am pleased. But I know it’s not finished. Not quite resolved. But that doesn’t necessarily mean I know what to do next. Being stuck isn’t all that bad. It just means deeper thought is required. It only means that a fresher look will yield better insight.
Time to shift gears. Time to do something less intense. I think tomorrow I’ll get the collage papers out again. Perhaps put a few more new works up in my Etsy shop.
Meanwhile, here’s a finished photograph of a recent panel with heavily sculptural elements.
Makes me think of something washed up by the surf.
I wish you many smooth creative days, and not too many stuck ones.
