Oil on Canvas
Seems I've been suffered from writer's block lately. Sometimes I just can't find the words to express what I'm trying to say. Maybe I should write in a daily journal. Years ago I kept journals faithfully. I would sit down in the late afternoon and record thoughts that would pop into my head. When I was a young girl, I kept diaries too.
As with painting, writing is something that requires practice. We need to air out our thoughts and feelings so that they more easily come to the surface. When I don't paint for a while, I become blocked and kind of crabby. When in the flow of painting, I feel happy and alive. I think that holds true for any passionate activity. Use it or lose it.
Have you ever experienced writer's block or any other block?
