Generous photographers share their photos for artists to use as references for paintings. While I usually work from my own photos, from life, or a combination of the two (99% of the time) the reference photos on this site are copyright free to use. However the artwork created is the copyright of the artist who painted it. Lynton Bolton was the kind photographer to up load this image. Go check out the reference photos there when you need ideas or a good shot to work from.
Which leads me to Creative Blocks and Trying to get your Mojo back!
Finishing a new piece during trying times is a challenge and especially when "Life" as we know it gets in the way! Try as I might to stay on a daily painting schedule, things like my recent knee surgery get in the way. As well as family health issues and TIME........ T I M E! Well, the lack of it for that matter.
This spurred me on to write a little about creative blocks and staying motivated when life doesn't want you to be. Although I am working on the composition of a new larger piece for my drawing board, I thought readers might find interest in some of the info I have realized myself or found thru periods of struggling.
