Unfocused Ramblings

I thought it was just me……but after reading several artists blog posts over the last few days I don’t feel so alone.
For the last few days I cant seem to concentrate…..I feel really unfocused in my work.
I am irritable, in part, because I have all this creative stuff in my head that can’t come out.
There’s so much in there that I am having trouble focusing on one thing.
I can’t decide what to do first.  I start one thing and then think I should be working on something else.
I was waiting for this time when I only had a few orders ahead of me, when I could just play, do what I wanted for a few hours, experiment with new ideas……
Now I don’t know what to do with myself.
It is so frustrating!!!!
It doesn’t help that my studio is an absolute mess and I really need to deal with that before I start anything else, but I stand there and look at the fabric pulled out, the sketchbooks all over the place, the yarn that needs to be put away, the glass rods in a pile and I am paralyzed!
I have been having this urge to paint, so I pulled out three colors and started this background…..
Hopefully I can find the inspiration to finish this when it is dry.
As artists are we just supposed to wait for these phases to pass, or fight thru them……I am not sure…..
Have I held these new ideas in for so long that they don’t want to come out anymore?
I am kind of jealous of my cat right now……
He’s not fighting any repressed creativity!!
We finished the screening in the back porch and most of the cats love it.  They can sit and watch the birds, enjoy the breeze and chill.
Maybe I should take some lessons from my cats….relax and this too shall pass 🙂
