|Resistance mode is not pretty, but this new work might be|
It's a nice thing to volunteer for the church, work hard, have a nice time with friends and fellow volunteers. It's quite another to lose all momentum on the creative front just because I wasn't painting for a week.
Being an artist is not easy at all.
Coming out of resistance mode is like climbing out of a deep crevasse, I just don't want to have to cut my arm off to come free.
In the depth of my blah-dom, my don't-feel-like-painting mood, while the new work sat waiting on my easel/desk, I wasted more time by surfing the internet. Bad.
Yeah, I get on, promote my stuff, spill some thoughts, share others. Blah blah blah. Knowing I'd get a little help from artist friends online I shared that the weather is rainy, there's no motivation, maybe I should read a book, and would someone just kick me. Wouldn't you know it, that's exactly what one artist did. He commented: Here's your kick. I love it!
Funny thing though, it worked.
Thankfully, the new work was ready to go or it would not be pretty.
