I did bring my painting stuff upstairs and worked on a portrait of my grand-daughter that I have been working on for a long time. This painting is the second one I've attempted because the first one was not working out the way I wanted it to.
|This is the first attempt. I quit before I put too much into it and|
might just revisit it later. Being watercolour, I can still make
some changes to it.
|This is the second attempt and it has potential. It is far|
from finished but I kind of like what it going on.
With the return of power, I could use my sewing machine and I needed to do some quilting on the table runner my friends and I had succeeded in putting together.
I'm happy with it, however, as I quilted it, it started to bunch and buckle. I've quilted three squares and I'm not happy so I will have to take it apart and come up with another plan.
So you see, artists don't always have successful days and this one was absolutely not successful. When I have days like this, it is inspiration-sapping and I find it hard to continue or come up with an idea, that I think will work. From the past, I've learned to just work through it and eventually I receive success and the inspiration will return again.
I'm hoping that in next week's blog, I'll have some really positive experiences to share with you.
