Sometimes, when life happens in a way you have trouble coping with, it takes awhile to find your groove again. The solitude of my studio has been a calming and peaceful place to re-connect with who I am as an artist.
The process of painting has been a wonderful way to honor my Mom, who was my biggest fan. It has also made me re-evaluate my life as an artist and my artistic goals. Made me think about what truly makes me happy when I paint and where my future as an artist lies. I think every artist goes thru periods of restructuring and soul searching throughout their career. It's how you emerge on the other side that is important. I'm not sure I am ready to commit to the new ideas yet, but the process has been fun and enlightening.
So, if you are struggling a little, take a step back. Quiet the noise around you and go on your search. It is worth the effort.
