I felt like Van Gogh all last week - not the style or his type of talent, just the despair. Well, really just crankiness. For the life of me, I just couldn't paint anything! Canvases were flying off my easel ... and ultimately turned toward the wall, trashed, or scrubbed squeaky clean with turps.
Took a break for several days, tweaked my website at www.mungerart.com
, signed up for Open Studio Tour in November (surely I will be on track by then), cleaned my studio and stacked bad stuff in the corner to be gessoed over when the temperature drops in AZ and I can do it outside. Also, a funny thing: I found some not-so-old paintings that were kinda hidden in the closet, and I found that I liked them! Going to hang those puppies up! Feeling better, taking a deep breath (as all the politicians say), pulling out a glistening fresh, medium sized canvas, selecting subject matter that always makes me happy...maybe a Flamenco dancer...and I am going to have some fun in the studio today. Maybe I can post the results in a future blog! Soon.
May my muse return...Please?
