Artist’s Block

Artist’s Block

I have a confession to make… recently I went through artist “block”.  I was shifting from one style to another, but nothing was evolving.  After struggling, I stopped and examined just what was happening.

For me, my work as an abstract artist evolves from an experienced emotion.  Before I start a new work the story, emotion and meaning to the work must be revealed to me before I can continue. Every once in a while my enthusiasm gets ahead of everything I need to experience.  What I had to do was find the relationship from one emotion to the other, like the climate changing from the mountaintop to the desert. Once I found that emotional shift, my creativity returned and new work emerged.

Take a look at some of my newest work and see what I mean.
