I'm not really asleep, but it feels like my muse is. I've not been inspired by anything to paint, and what I've attempted to paint ( for two days now) has been put aside because it looks like a painting one might see in a beginners painting class. Ugh! I was working on one of my new linen panels and it seems to be a coarser weave than the first ones I purchased. My colors are muddy and the painting really looks like someone else painted it! I know this will pass, but it's not a comfortable place to be. I'll start on something new tomorrow and go back to my beloved 5x7 Ampersand Gessoboards. That board still seems to be magic to me! I'm starting to get inspired, just thinking about getting away from this linen texture. Silly me.

Painting this way ain't a natural thing to do!

Marilyn, I know how you feel. I haven't been painting as much lately either. I don't know why, maybe it's the weather this time of year, or, who knows why it happens. But, it's always temporary! Take your time.
