A good way to re-ignite creativity is to change pace. If you produce five paintings a month, why not instead produce one?
Approach that one painting differently than you would previous work.
Ask more questions as to why you’re painting it, the subject matter, the reasons behind the work and maybe perhaps what you would hope for the work long term.
I don’t ask these questions really, partly because I’m scared of the answers.
We all know the fable of the centipede, upon being asked how he manages to walk with so many legs, thought about the question – and never walked again.
I don’t want to be that centipede, and I’m sure neither do you, but sometimes it’s good to slow down and look at things from a different more thoughtful angle.
A challenge to be sure, as indeed these were, back in the day.
