Smoke out a muse in hiding

We all have those dreaded days where we can’t seem to find our muse anywhere, no matter how loud or how long we call out for her. If this dry spell goes on for too long, it can even make us feel like there is no point in showing up at all anymore and that is a shame.

A muse absolutely can be motivated to show her face, even when she doesn’t feel like it. It’s good to have a few warm up exercises up your sleeve to smoke out a muse in hiding.

This is one of my favourites and if you end up really loving your little story, just keep adding media until you’re looking at an awesome, quirky and finished piece of art! No more waiting around for our fickle muses to show up, it’s time to take matters into our own hands. 😉

    True. I also find that inspiration doesn’t care much for clutter and disorganization, so my thoughts and actions tend to turn toward decluttering and organizing. After I while, I catch a glimpse of my muse peaking around the corner.

      I do tolerate some clutter (just because I’m messy by nature) but I totally agree that there is a certain point at which it gets in the way of creating. Organising my art space is definitely on my to do list, but every day I just decide to paint instead. It’s such a huge task that I keep on procrastinating. How do you find the discipline Burnell? ❤️
