Hi. If it hasn't seemed obvious I have really been avoiding the internet lately. Mostly because I feel ashamed. I have hardly worked at all in my studio. I've been so terrified that I will have nothing to make. I don't know what to do in there right now. I've been pushing paint around on paper but nothing is very inspiring. Every time I think of blogging I just feel guilt and shame. I read so many blogs of amazing and talented people who always seem to have a hand in different creative pots and I don't know what to do at all. Do any of you struggle with balancing work and art and life? I know I just got out of grad school so there will probably be some down time but I'm so so so scared of never getting back that creativity. I honestly never thought it would be this hard. I'm losing confidence and I have to find it quickly.
I'm sorry for the self pity, I'm just hoping that maybe others feel this way sometimes? How do you balance it? I am going to figure out a schedule so that I can fit everything I want to do in. I am so far behind on blog reading (probably because I'm avoiding the internet?) and I need to do some upkeep on my etsy shop and I need to just jump in and start making art and allow failure to happen.
Okay, hopefully I got all this out of my system. I'm going to go in my studio and see what I can do.
Thanks for being such wonderful readers!
