inspiration monday


sometimes no matter how long you sit and stare at the blank page,
the ideas just won't come, and it's easy to get into a creative slump.








so when that happens, here's a remedy for whatever ails you:








 as long as you do what you truly love to do....
 try not to get distracted by what everyone else is doing....
forget about all those self-imposed pressures....
and create artwork that's true to your heart.....








{and especially just please yourself....}








 you'll be able to write your own personal prescription for creativity....
and inspiration will help you, because it's always the best medicine!
(well, next to chocolate, that is...... :))



{this was created in my walls notebook using pitt pens,
derwent inktense pencils, pan pastel, and a 6B graphite pencil}

So true! And I find that if I just start something, and keep at it even if it's not very good, I end up back on the creative road.
