My apologies to Pink Flloyd.

Artist block is a real thing that happens every so often.  I’ve been asked before how I get through it.  I’ve shown you a couple of the abstracts  I did to loosen up, and that’s one way I deal with it.

Another is just to draw anything, it doesn’t matter.  Paper bags, coffee cups, salt and pepper shakers.

I used to, as an assignment in an art class, keep a sketch book with me at all times, and in leisure moments, sketch whatever was around in sight.  I ended up with a pictorial diary that brings me back in time, each time I look at it.  I think it brings me back more than a written journal would. 

But back to just drawing.  There are so many odds and ends you can pick up and put together in a still life.  Here’s one I did, and am thinking of redoing more carefully.  It’s a statuette of Kwan Yin, and an amber sphere.

And here’s another one I did, to break the block in the wall.
