By the end of my schooling, I was super burned out on the creativity front. We were forced to be creative, innovating and productive for three years straight, 50+ hours per week. Ever since I have felt uninspired and lazy when it comes to things I used to do constantly (draw and paint).
Saturday I went to Wallack's and picked up a block of high quality water colour paper, some medium-quality paints and medium quality brushes. I'd lost all the good quality stuff my dad got me in my moves over the years.
I've finished one painting, which is very raw and kind of shows how I'm just getting my 'sea legs' back right now and I've started a drawing which I think will turn out well. It feels good to just MAKE for no purpose. Well no purpose other than getting feelings that have no words out of you.
My ex has a lot of my paintings (or at least had, who knows if he still has them) and I wish I could get them back but I don't feel like doing the dance he will make me do to get them. Although thinking back on it, if he still has them, I had some pretty quality pieces that mean a lot to me. Maybe I'll send him an email...I'll have to sit on it for a while though. I'm not sure it's worth the trouble.
