A New Watercolour

Lately I feel like I am in a creative whirlpool...I have no shortage of ideals, in fact maybe I have too many ideas...I am all muddled up and don't know exactly why...I think...I think, it's because I am not working on the pieces piling up in my sketchbook, the ones that make me giddy and keep me up at night...why am I just not diving right in to what I know will be creative bliss?!  I don't know...but I'll figure it the meantime I'll just keep ploughing ahead, what else can one do!

Today I listed this original mixed media in my Etsy shop, it is mostly watercolour with abit of black coloured pencil and white acrylic paint. It is 5 x 7 inches and will/should slide nice and easy into any one of your favourite 5 x 7 frames.  It is a colour study for a larger piece but I think is worthwhile all on it's sweet tiny little self.

(The Original is SOLD) 

What do you guys do when you get in a creative muddle?

Thanks for hopping in...I think it's time to turn the studio heat on soon!  I was hoping to avoid doing do until November but my already frozen fingers are telling me that's not gonna happen.

Have a good day everyone, see you in a couple days.  XO M & The Buns.

well, first i love you new bird. pretty flower in the middle.

to move ahead with my art/crafts, i usually leave it for a while. usually a little walk and fresh air does the trick.

i am loving this new piece! the colors are wonderful and i cannot wait to see the larger piece. what do i do when i get in a creative muddle? knowing i always get through it if i push on through. that one thing always leads to the next. and for me, i always follow those things that bring me joy. my owl paintings... i just can't stop painting them, even though i've tried. but i enjoy them so much! so why stop :)

best to you!
