I've been in hiding a lately. Experiencing a little artistic drought and I'm trying to get myself out of it. Whenever I go silent you can be sure that I'm experiencing a drought. I finally reach a goal and then I sabotage myself and stop being creative. Its the same old story. Fear of success so lets sabotage it all. I should know the signs by now. It starts with overeating and ends with loss of artistic drive. I'm trying really hard to snap out of it. I went to the art shop today and bought some new supplies. That always helps. I have these old deck chairs (sometimes called directors chairs) and the canvas is all ripped leaving them unable to be used. I've decided to replace the canvas but first I will do some artwork on it. I bought some canvas roll and I am going to play around with some acrylic encaustic painting techniques. That should make for some interesting looking deck chairs. Hopefully that will entice my inner artist child to come back out and play.
