Is There Such a Thing as Painter’s Block?

Maybe I need to be the inspiration I am waiting for. There’s a half-painted landscape on my easel and a million different paintings floating around inside my brain, but nothing wants to become paint on canvas (or even paint on paper). I’m beginning to think that lack of inspiration is becoming an excuse to not try any more. I need to make it happen instead of waiting for it to happen. I need to be OK with sketching and making mistakes. Everything does not have to be a masterpiece, It just need to be another step in the journey. I need to keep working in order to grow. It’s officially time to push myself! Wish me luck.

  1. I think there has to be a block. If you can’t be enthusiastic or excited, your art shows that. When I lack inspiration i work on my skills or read and take a holiday of sorts. Sketching usually leads to something. 🙂
