I hate it when I have I guess they are called artists' blocks-it's a difficult time when you are bursting to make something or express an emotion using art-but nothing comes out onto the paper or canvas or fabric. I think I whined and moaned here recently and I hate that even more.
I wanted to also cover something I brought up-and that's copying. I certainly did not have anyone in mind at all. There is a big difference in being inspired by a work. I also think it's very good to admire a work, and think about how to change it into your own*. Perhaps that's part of inspiration.
So I just hope I didn't offend anyone in that way too.....
There are TONS and TONS of art works that I want to copy and that make me say-"Why didn't I think of that?"
So forgive me if I sounded like a self-righteous snoot.
The very best I can do will come out of somewhere inside of me.
