Oh no! I've hit a roadblock and I can't paint!
Every artist feels this way at one time or another. So what do you do? You can get back in the studio, do what you've always done and paint your way through the roadblock. This works for some folks. Or you can take a little time and focus on what inspired you to paint in the first place. Ask yourself questions about what, how, when, and why? you paint. Explore colors you love, media and surfaces you like, techniques and styles you enjoy, and know how you want your paintings to look and what response you want from viewers. In other words, know thyself and as you've heard so many times, paint what you love!
