My apologies to Pink Flloyd.
Artist block is a real thing that happens every so often. I’ve been asked before how I get through it. I’ve shown you a couple of the abstracts I did to loosen up, and that’s one way I deal with it.
Another is just to draw anything, it doesn’t matter. Paper bags, coffee cups, salt and pepper shakers.
I used to, as an assignment in an art class, keep a sketch book with me at all times, and in leisure moments, sketch whatever was around in sight. I ended up with a pictorial diary that brings me back in time, each time I look at it. I think it brings me back more than a written journal would.
But back to just drawing. There are so many odds and ends you can pick up and put together in a still life. Here’s one I did, and am thinking of redoing more carefully. It’s a statuette of Kwan Yin, and an amber sphere.
And here’s another one I did, to break the block in the wall.
