My Mantra when it comes to making art seems to be, "When in doubt, go back to what you love."
Having a bit of a funk is no excuse for not creating, and sometimes the fears bite really deeply and tell me I just can't do it - that really, I Am Shit. Shit. And so Why am I doing this?
And right then is when I need to go back to painting what I really love. Picking up something I was having a break from, and walking forward with it again.
Right now that thing is the beach.
So here's the next step forward. Not yet finished, but hell, what's wrong with a work in progress post?
