It's been that kind of a week -- I bring myself to the practice table, but the 'inspiration' that ususally fills my time there seems to have fled. I'm sure fatigue and busyness, family and work concerns nibble away at that 'zone' one wishes to move into to practice or paint at one's best. And I know we've all experienced that restlessness every now and again. And we know too, that it shall pass. Still, the frustration of working THROUGH it, is such a BOTHER! LOL
Nevertheless, having been through these kinds of days before, I continue to put paint to paper DESPITE the outcome, knowing that when Ms. Muse decides to show up again, at least I'll be at the table READY for her return.
Despite the art frustration, we've been having some incredibly wonderful fall-like days -- cooler temperatures, blue skies, foggy mornings. Roadsides are yellow and lavender with wildflowers, and we've plans this weekend to visit an apple festival ... maybe I'll find Ms. Muse there... but if I don't, I know the apples we purchased last year will be well worth the trip!
Here's to inspiration! May we all find a bit more today!
