"Lemon Tea Bag"

Well, I have been away from my blogging for almost 3 months now. Nor have I been painting much during this time. I've hit a real block on what to paint. Putting a still life together to paint is such a difficult task for me. I have painted a few still life pieces, but have been so disappointed with the outcome. I was doing other things during this time, like making quilts and listing in my shop on etsy for the Holidays. But I was afraid to paint. So I figured that I needed a big break in my routine, to focus on other things, and return to painting when I was excited about something to paint. Today I was excited about painting and it didn't matter what was in front of me. This is the last piece I did several months ago.

"Kissing Eggs"

And then my inspiration light went out.
