I've just picked up my painting brushes again after a self imposed abstinence of a month.
I was locked into a repetitive train of thought regarding my art.
I thought that if I spent a bit more time observing, then i could get some fresh input to my work.
It hasn't worked, and deep down inside I knew that wouldn't be the case.
I'm not sure it ever does.
Not for me anyway.
Sometimes, the only way forward is to keep moving.Keep experimenting.Keep trying, and push through those self imposed barriers, until a breakthrough emerges.
Of course, there is always a time to sit and ponder and reflect, and clear away the mental debris.
But too long a break can lead to lethargy, laziness even, and fear and doubt.
Like the shark, for me I will just continue moving,The fate otherwise is to drown in my own inaction.
Inspiration comes from ceaseless persistence.
Never again will I take such a sabbatical.
