I Miss My Paints & Artists Who Inspire Me


I haven’t posted anything about painting in awhile, and I think it’s mostly because I haven’t painted in nearly two, almost three months.

I miss it…

I’m slightly worried that my passion for it and the creativity that drove me to paint in the first place has faded away…

I’ve been asking myself if it was all just a fleeting fancy-just some form of manic expression that isn’t really…me.

Not sure if that makes sense…I wish I could articulate what I mean a lot better, but I’ve had two glasses of wine so articulation is swimming in Lake Moscato at the moment.

Ahem…

What I’m trying to say is that I’m a creative person who hasn’t been able to create in a few months and I’m scared this particular form of creative expression has moved on and out of my life much like dancing has….which makes me incredibly sad.

I miss my paints, and having my colorful creations adorn my walls. I gave away & sold about 15 of them, but those I have left are still locked up in a storage unit back in PA….I miss the excitement that emanates all the way from my toes to my fingertips when I sit down in front of a blank canvas to paint. I miss the adrenaline rush of the creative process and how it leaves me pregnant with possibility.

Anyway, enough lamenting…I’ll save the rest of this for a time when I’m less tipsy and a little less apt to talk about being impregnated by creativity.

I’ll leave you with some videos of artists I found via YouTube who are helping me keep my love and passion for painting alive….trust me when I say they are worth taking the time to watch.

Enjoy!

    • I’m right there with you. Seriously. I feel like my creativity has dried up. I hate it. and I hate that you aren’t scrapbooking.

  1. I understand completely. I used to do a lot of creative writing. Now? I can barely form a blog post which is why I stopped blogging. It saddens me every single day that I can’t write the way I used to.

  2. i know exactly what your talking about. my ex-boyfriend was bipolar and also a musician, he was constantly going off and on his meds because they killed his creativity. i hope this isn’t what has happened to you, but please, PLEASE, don’t stop taking your meds, things did not turn out well for him, i’d hate to see the same happen to you.
