Thirty Paintings in 30 Days - Day 5

......Not one of my best days in the studio :(  
Nothing was clicking and in the end I went back to a smaller more abstract landscape. I have done a couple of still life paintings, but not sure if they really reflect 'me'. If you are an artist you will know exactly what I am talking about. So here is day 5 such as it is.

Here are a couple of quotes I came across after a 'long' day in my studio.....

"Blocks are part of an artist's natural cycle, and mine come whenever I reach a plateau. I'll feel bottled up with negativism, but when I blast through the garbage, I find I've emerged as a better artist." Nick Payne Artist

"I'm not running out of ideas, just trying to push myself into better ones."  Mike McQuade Graphic Designer & Illustrator


  1. Love the second quote......and think the painting you posted was the "better idea".

    1. You must have read my mind Judith. At some point will 'show' you the one that didn't make not me! Always appreciate your comments.

  2. LOVE this Janet. Love the golden light on the horizon, the ghost images, the teal wonderfulness. The textures that are so you. Beautiful!

    1. Thank you so much for commenting Sheila. Your comment is very insightful and has helped me to take a step back and refocus. Am really enjoying your paintings. Just haven't gotten around to commenting. Have a great weekend.
