This week the Three Muses challenge had a theme of “a nice cup of tea” and Theme Thursday invited us to create a 2×4. Here is my 2×4 tea time.
This past week I have been struggling to “kick start” my art. Everything feels a bit forced…including this piece. I did have fun making it. I started out yesterday creating the teapot with collage and tissue paper. Today I shrunk it down to fit on a 2×4 and completed the card. As I said, fun, but I had to push myself all the way to finally posting. Creative blocks are rare for me, but I do get them and it is an awful restless feeling that I can’t find a way to satisfy my need to create–no media seems right, images fail, etc. I was feeling pressure this week not having posted and at some point was considering not continuing with the blog. I opted for using the fact of that pressure and the challenges to just make art…reminding myself there will be days (weeks? months?) like this and it is ok. It is all part of the process.
Thank you for stopping by!
