Artists block ~ What’s an artist to do?

Feeling Blah and uninspired? What do you do when you run out of creativity? Is it perhaps boredom? How do you get your muse to move back in and carry on like the good ol’ days when you camped out in your studio, burning the midnight oil, painting like a crazed artist? Now you wake up and stare blankly at your easel wandering how on earth you’ll ever survive since your muse left not even a spark of desire?

Do you think perhaps going with the flow and just doing something else creative for awhile would help? Like gardening? Spring is on her way, how can one not be excited about getting your hands dirty, planting some seeds and planning your garden? Perhaps plant seeds especially for painting as a subject matter. Monet designed his entire garden just for that purpose.

How do you overcome Artist’s block and where do you find your inspiration?

  1. I feel like I have a perpetual case of artists block. I overcome it by just sitting down and painting even or especially when I really don’t want to. It also helps to read articles and blogs about painting, watching time lapse videos of other people painting, or doing studio stuff like prepping canvases. The more I actively think about painting the easier it is.
