160 Windows and Light
11" x 14" acrylic on paper
This is the last of the abstract series I painted this summer to keep my sanity! These abstracts were fun to explore and one of the things that I learned about myself is whenever I'm feeling like I can't paint or I don't want to paint and feeling strong resistance, abstracts offer a fun, low-pressure way to simply move paint around. Having no expectations helps to get me back into the swing of things. It feels like a secret weapon. Feel free to try this the next time you're feeling the dreaded resistance.
How about you? What helps you get back into the swing of things when you're feeling stuck? I'd love to hear your thoughts and solutions.
