Inspiration is in Your Mind

June 23, 2010

Have you ever been stuck looking at that white canvas, white paper, blank board or whatever and your mind is as blank as what’s in front of you?  Here are some things to try to get you going again:

1.  Paint backgrounds ahead for that collage, painting, or whatever.  Just make it so the ground isn’t WHITE.

2. Try painting, collaging, (or whatever you do) the color of:

What water feels like

Candlelight in different parts of a room

The feeling of polar fleece

Jumping up and down


Total contentment



What chocolate tastes like

The smell of the ocean

Mowed grass smell

Bare feet in the sand

The smell of rain

Once you get going on one of these things you’ll find yourself thinking about a lot of things that you want to do and you’re off and running again.  Have a wonderfully creative time.
