I’m not sure what’s wrong with me lately. I’m stuck in some sort of funk and it’s been hard to get out of it. For the past few months I was unable to draw or paint. My head is full of ideas, but putting those ideas on paper proved to be difficult. I’d start on a project but quickly lose interest, so now I have a folder full of half finished drawings and sketches.
I miss art though. I miss how much joy it used to give me. So yesterday I decided to try again and ease myself back into painting by going “back to basics”. Thus, I’ve painted a goldfish, which was one of the first things I ever painted (see the “old” goldfish here). The painting itself is very tiny, about the size of my hand (and I have very small hands), and painted with acrylics on a wooden floor panel. I can’t say it’s the best thing I ever painted, but it’s a start.
