* My muse has left the building

All my other paintings have come quite easily.  Not this one.  My muse is nowhere to be found.  I'm struggling.  She won't talk to me.  I don't know what colours to use.  The shadows are waaaay to dark.  I didn't like the flowers, so whited them out - will try again.  Absolutely nothing is working ... including my mood.

I'll begin again ... and again ... until I get it the way it wants to be. 

Thanks for dropping by.  Hoping you are all well and happy.  xxoo Donna

Oh my, oh my....I thought I was the only one with no muse. I was happy to see you leave us a post so we know you are still working on your painting.

I downloaded a new brush for my digital art and it applies to all of us, especially during the holiday season.

"Where there is great love...there are always miracles." I received this from Kim Klausen Cafe.

Sending love,

Sorry to hear your muse is not showing itself. But I am sure she will soon be back and active again; sometimes we just need a little time!
Take care of yourself, Hugs,

Is she waiting for you, or, are you waiting for her. Her eyes looks sad, I think she is feeling for you. I kinda like the white-out of the flowers. I wonder if she would like them on the white'ish/light'ish side eventually?
Sending you some 'muse vibes' from here, they looked a little lost, hope they help. xx randomrose

I think she has so much more depth than before. I like her! And when the muse is coming back wuuhuuuu ;-)

dear donna, be patient with yourself, if you can. If working on this painting is not coming easily for you right now, maybe it is better to do other things. I never feel my muse has left me, only that it steers me in different directions to what I need, right at that time. It may be surprising to you what is happening, but it is okay. You will be playing with this painting in a flowing way again soon! I look forward to it and want you to be happy. Listen to your heart.

Oh Donna I do sympathize with you as I'm in the same place. So many things I want to do and so little mental capacity to focus on anything. The holidays seasons are always a double edged sword. Don't fight it - it will come when it's the right time. I know when I'm like that if I keep pushing it I will just mess it up so I just step away.

I like the painting and can' wait for the next showing. You are a wonderful artist. Wishing you nothing but the best for the New Year.

Not that I feel it is my place to criticize, but your muse is obviously reflecting your mood. Give her a little sparkle and I'm sure she will give you some in return :D XXX
