Last month I did that session with Creative Awakenings all about being fearless as an artist. I did a few journal pages and I felt I was on to something. Now this month it feels like everything I do is crap. All the paint I put onto the page bores me. The colors look awful and it gets so frustrating. I end up putting paper over it and doing collage.
Here are two examples of that. The pages started out with yellows and brown and both got covered up. I had intended to just use this paper and then do a face on top but as I was looking for images for the next page these guys on camels wanted to be here.
In this one I covered the entire page with glue and just did a patchwork of papers pover it. Now granted that is a fun exercise but its not what I want to be doing. I want to be painting but I can't seem to do it to any satisfaction. Does this happen to any of you?
I wonder how all of you stick to your visions when you get in the studio. I have been so frustrated lately that I don't even want to begin. I know its a phase and I should just go with it but....
