I ‘m always pleased when I encounter a little difficulty artistically. It’s at that point that I have to look for tools I may not have, or simply rusted. If you can get through without resorting to switching the work to your comfort zone, there’s a plus.
The arc of creativity is not rigid or fixed. The countless pundits that swear that they have this magic potion that serves them are usually close. Dramatic artist, are usually referencing this when talking about “being in the moment”.
Whatever your point of view it’s essential in my opinion that you keep a tight relationship with it. If not you risk being predictable. Essential to your inspiration is constant change. Jump off the artistic bridge. Daryl Hayott sr.

There’s rarely been a time that I haven’t heard the sky is falling. It’s the mantra of a fear based mindset. Those same folks use expressions like “the powers that be”. Who are these mysterious entities we give so much credit to? Faceless all powerful brokers of what is relevant.
I for one am not feeling it. No mysterious force can govern you without the complete surrender of your common sense. Sounds naive maybe but, I live it. Take your craft to heart and realize most artist whom are revered now, died broke or insane. Once you recognize that maybe your creativity is self expressive and not for subjective public scrutiny, a calm will cross you. Just play, paint, photograph whatever. See the sky as an infinite canvas as opposed to a ceiling vulnerable to gravity. Or simply put greed. Without vanity, be accountable to the craft period.
