A Different Kind of Artist's Block.....
Before I treat you to a much shorter post than my previos two, I just wanted to say thank you for the lovely feedback I'm receiving on my new blog. It seems that my two previous posts in particular, on motivation and time management, have inspired several readers to contact me, which has been really nice.
Anyway, today I am posting something a little different... something I definitely wouldn't normally have posted! I discovered this footage on my own camera very soon after reading Nicola McLeans post on the problems she was having with her own camera, so I was of course inspired to share it!
...So you know that feeling... You walk in to your art studio with the hope of a peaceful and productive day? ...I just love being in my studio. It's my haven... My 'girl cave'... Well usually!
Only this day did not go quite so well!
Firstly, my Husband was working just outside the studio and whatever he was doing, it was NOISY!! Usually, the only sounds I hear as I paint, are the birds tweeting and my music playing. But on this day it felt more like I was in the middle of a building site than in my studio!
Also, I had decided to make another time-lapse video, like the previous one I did. Only this time it would be better... Well, at least that was the plan! But instead, with all of the racket going on outside I couldn't concentrate properly and I was having trouble connecting my camera to my phone... Or so I thought!
What I didn't realise, was that not only was I already connected, but I was already filming! And I didn't even realise this until a few days later when I discovered the footage on my SD card! I must admit, when I saw it I was quite amused by my obvious bewilderment... and the fact I started actually talking (cursing) to myself at the end of the video, only highlighted the frustration I was clearly feeling!
Anyway, in the end I decided that this was not the right frame of mind to be in while painting, so I took Sherlock for a long walk instead!
For your own entertainment, I thought I'd share it with you... This was about 10 minutes of confusion and headache, condensed down to about a minute...
Q. What's your biggest obstacle in the art studio?
Week in a nutshell...
Excited about: My large marble painting is almost finished!
Discovered: The joys of using an Editorial Calendar. Now I can plan all of my blog posts well in advance!
Listening to: Brahm's Lullabye, by Chloe Agnew
Watching: I wish! The Sky Box has conked out, so nothing until the end of the week. Humph!
