There’s an underlying theme in my “art”, that being the lack of inspiration. What happens is what you see here. I taped a large piece of watercolor paper on my art board, grabbed a clementine to eat while painting, and sat down. Nothing happened. It’s like pretending to be a psychic, waiting on something to mysteriously appear in my mind. Oh how I hate that! Wanting to paint, but having nothing in mind. So I did what I do in these situations… paint what I see. Usually, it turns into some abstract thing that’s full of color. So here it is, a clementine on my art board next to the taped-down watercolor paper.
This is what happens to me when the creative urge strikes, and I have no inspiration. It’s very frustrating, but I’ve found that, as in life, if you just do something, anything, things open up just as they need to. I had nothing to paint but I saw the outlines and shadows of my head from the light above. That’s how this one all started.
