This post started out as a long ramble about how my [hopefully temporary] malaise got the better of me and I gave up on my silly worksheets and sketchbook project. And, as sometime happens, my long ramble brought me around to a solution to my artistic mental block.
At that point, I decided to stop writing about how my depressed mood was preventing me from completing structured creative work and instead picked up my markers and got busy doing what I enjoy: Drawing swirls.
So, OK, the structured creative work still needs to be completed because I have to finish what I started. But since I started it as an outlet for my grief/depression/sadness/whatever, and it is now adding stress to my life because I feel bad for not working on it, I’ve decided to stop and take a break.
Which means that you can bet I’ll be doing a lot of doodle drawings but less assigned drawing—but that’s OK because it makes me happy.
And I’m sharing tonight’s ‘work in progress’ with you now. Yay!
