I have little patience with artist's/writer's block and the agonizing that goes with it; it may sound glamorous, but it's not. It is merely a euphemism for "I need a break". If the well is empty, fill it with something else. I take breaks when I need them, which is why I can keep returning to my work table in a positive mood. I don't believe in "muses" either. I believe in myself. (You are your own muse!)

I've been dreaming about an orange bird squawking.....

  4. Colette, you are so talented and creative that it's hard to imagine that artist block can come to you. But I know it happens to everyone. I like to look at other artist's work (yourself included), listen to some new music (NPR music always has something new and unique), go for a drive in the desert, look at some books on new artful techniques to get myself moving again. Sometime it works, and other time it's only a sign that I need a break. Maybe even a coffee break with a friend. :-) Hugs to you!!
