When Any Talent You Have...

...seems to have left the building. You know that feeling when you wonder where your inspiration/talent/muse went off to when you were working hard trying to paint something? Why did whatever meager talent you seem to possess not run into your brush today? What the hell happened to that muse you pay so much money for? Did my inspiration go out drinking with my muse and they both got lost-drunk-abducted??!?


I've got no idea what happened, but when one finds oneself in this annoying position, don't despair. Bad art happens to good people. Get over yourself, go feed your muse some good chocolate. Give your inspiration a good, strong cuppa coffee. Take the night off and get back on the proverbial horse tomorrow. K? Ya, that's my plan... now where the hell is that chocolate? ;o)

Later Gator, I gotta go sober up my team. I don't drink but they obviously do. *Jenn rolls her eyes at her virtual muse". Oh and just so I can officially say I participated, I'm hooking up with #WorldWatercolorMonth. If you want to join us you have more than a month to join in the fun.

Best,

  2. Beautiful alive flowers. I love flowers. Yellow houses would look excellent with gray trim. . .my opinion. Amazing how much alike we think. I too review books for authors. I appreciate your visit. Thank you. Blessings, Janet

  9. haha, I certainly know that feeling more than I'd like to! I love your flowers, the bright strong colours in the front and the soft colours in the back. Gives a real sense of depth and movement. Have fun with the challenge!

  10. This is my story right now...maybe the wildfires in the Cariboo stole them... I take it this gorgeous watercolour that I LOVE so much, especially because it's the exact same pink as my gypsy pink living room is an old piece!! Bad art is me the last two weeks...thank goodness for the licorice caramel purdys my daughter bought me a few weeks back.... oh and netflix!! Hope those drunken muses return from holiday sooner than later!!

    Hugs Giggles

  11. I am guessing that your muse/inspiration had sobered up when you painted that scene, it's gorgeous. Your worse day is probably my best, lol
