Eyes Have It

I think I've lost my Muse. I thought since J's passing, I would want to immerse myself in my art. It's just the opposite. I don't seem to have the interest. I have promised myself I would draw, collage or paint every day. Alas, I'm just not into it. I hope it's temporary, because I have enough stuff in my studio to start my own store. I think I will just set aside some small bit of time each day even if it's to stare at the paper and put a mark on it. I did this really quick sketch not paying attention to values or proportions - just to get something on paper.

Ah, Marilyn .. sometimes it takes a while to grieve ...be easy on yourself. I'm so sorry this has been such a difficult time ... your plan to simply put pencil to paper is a good one ... I believe it will help ... BIG HUGS ...dear one!

Yes, the "eyes have it!" What wonderful expression.
I agree with Lin, be easy on yourself and allow yourself to progress at your own pace through the various stages of grief.
I was in a bit of an "art funk" recently and decided to WORK through an art book and it's been inspiring to say the least. You may want to consider something similar.
