Inspired – or not…

I recently had a discussion with another artists about working when uninspired.  I don’t usually have that problem as I often feel I have inspiration overload, which is really the other side of the same coin!  Either way, it can be really inhibiting.  So what do you do?  I suppose it’s different for everyone, but as a working artist I go to work every day.  I don’t always achieve what I’d like and some days not much at all, but I always show up.  Some days I clean the studio, other days I will do mechanical things like paint frames and it’s all a step in the right direction.  I have started a drawing project with two friends, aiming to do a small sketchbook drawing every day. We share them on whatsapp  and, while I’m not in the routine yet, it is a great encouragement to each of us to at least do one thing every day.
