I finally finished this today. I've painted this scene before but never this small.
I've really been struggling with my painting for a while now. Thinking maybe it's time to stop, at least for awhile until I decide if I should continue. I decided to paint a very familiar scene to see if it would still be a struggle.
I remember the days when I would go to bed anticipating tomorrow's painting. I remember awakening in the morning and eagerly anticipating a new day of painting opportunities.
All that is past, like a long-lost lover. Lately, it is all just a big struggle- finding inspiration, trying to improve, getting motivated to start, etc.etc.
I don't know if others have gone through this or not, but I'd love to hear from you if you have.
Have a good weekend, folks, and sorry if I sound morose.
