It is hard to get over the hurdle of an artistic block especially when you are trying to create something new. Over the last few days I have been experimenting with a few different ideas. The two main ideas are to somehow re use plastic packaging in my art that is not recyclable via the normal methods and to add an other dimension to my painting style. Needless to say these are just the beginnings and not particularly fruitful. It all came to a head yesterday and I felt very overwhelmed by the fact none of the stuff I was doing was working. So I walked away from it all, had a good hard think and wrote down what it was I wanted to do. This has helped a great deal and now I have a better idea of how to make it all happen. A craniosacral session with Tim Munro also helped settle me down. Sometimes we just need to get away from whatever is frustrating us and think about what we really want.
