Making The Most

Of what seems like an unproductive day.

Have you ever had one of those days?  One of those days where your intention is to have mountains moved, roads paved, and fields plowed, and just the opposite happens.  That was my day today.  I woke up with a massive migraine, so I was late  getting up, and into my studio.  Once I did manage to get inside the door, I could not get my thoughts together to formulate an image.  Yesterday I was on fire, and today…… nothing….. When days like that happen its best to just embrace it, and do what ever you can in the studio.  If its not painting then it might be straightening up, it may be preparing some paper for the next day, or just doodling to loosen up and start that creative flow.  What ever you do, don’t fight it.  That will only compound the situation and frustrate you.

I decided to post some of my images on my Society6 store.  I am glad I did. I am glad that today turned out different.  It gave me an opportunity to see my images on products and come up with more ideas to incorporate more images in with them.

If you come up with one of these days that somehow things don’t go according to plan, perhaps they really are  according to what you may need that day.

Grab A Cuppa And Regroup

Some times that is exactly what you need, a cup of tea.   Just push back from that

desk or easel, and get a new view.  I have often said that my studio is a NEGATIVE FREE ZONE, and that includes me.  Don’t beat yourself up, just set some alternate goals.  I keep a stack of goals ( things that I can do on these days) So when I get in a funk , I switch gears.  I am still productive and I don’t beat myself up for not getting that blog post done, or for not painting another illustration.



So Here Is What I Did Do

Head on over to Society6 and visit my store if you want to follow and see what is going on.   But just incase you don’t want to press those links here are some cool things.  You can click on those images if you like.  Screen Shot 2015-12-18 at 3.58.59 PM.pngScreen Shot 2015-12-18 at 3.59.19 PM.png
