Hello everyone, I was reading a new post from one of the blogs I follow and it was so inspiring and important I had to share it with you all in case you were feeling the same as myself. Here is the link. :) The Sea of Fertility It should be the first post entitled Creative.
So this post really stuck out to me a lot, it was exactly what I have been going through and needing help with.
Lately when I would want to draw, I'd grab a pencil and paper, but then when Id go to draw I'd just stare at the white piece of paper and imeadietly go blank and have no idea what to draw. And then I've just been drawing the same things or similar things over and over again latley. They haven't been new, fresh, or inspiring. Just boring drawings that I don't think are any good. :( I've been feeling no inspiration, and drawing has not been as fun anymore either... :( And when I was a kid I loved to draw so much, Id draw almost the whole day and never get bored or feel uninspired. Looking back on my old art it felt more alive and free, now my art feels dull and constricted. Nancy is so right though, looking to other artists for inspiration really helps! I tried to do that today and I have a lot more inspiration to draw new things! I'm going to try harder to get out of my drawers block, and find inspiration, creativity, and a love to draw again. ^_^
Sincerely Cheryl. ^_^
