The Blahs

I don't know what's the matter with me. I've got ideas. I've got materials. I've got patterns. I've got deadlines. And I can't seem to get motivated.

I did this little sketch, made a line drawing of it, and enlarged it for a silk painting. Then I looked at it and thought, this design sucks. It just isn't good enough to put on silk.

Maybe instead of enlarging it, I should shrink it and repeat it, make it into a pattern. Finish the leaves.

  1. I love this. I think you are being too hard on yourself. I did this to myself today too. I kept saying how much I hated the head on one of my paintings, and my familywand friends around me were telling me I was crazy and being critical. I think this design is incredible. I like the loose lines! And I'm a total sucker for sunflowers. I've never met a sunflower I didn't like, even painted ones!
