June was an interesting month for me. Earlier in the month, I had what I like to call artists block similar to writers block and I wasn't painting. At this time, I was thinking way to far ahead into the future and over thinking everything rather than concentrating and being present in the moment. Then I asked myself what am I doing? Luckily when I realized this, I was able to bounce back. If this happens to you, don't beat yourself up about it. We've all been there. I finished a few more paintings this month and outlined what my next series of will be. I like to make lists which helps keep me on track and focused.

Part of being an artist for me is doing something creative every day. There are those days where I'm not in the mood to paint and that's okay. I've learned to get over that. We can't be at 100% all the time. On those days, I do what I like whether it's cooking, meditating, working out, going to a museum or concert, jotting down ideas, writing my blog, or hanging with my husband and friends to discuss art, theatre, music, movies, etc. It's all part of the creative process. Doing something else that's equally creative and rewarding always makes me feel good. Do what you love and don't stop being creative every day! You never know where you may find inspiration.
