Alyson Stanfield has a clue and solution it seems to me. http://goo.gl/yIKMCl She gives good advice, too.
The gist of the help in both articles is to get up off your bottom and get busy. Practice and "doing" gives you new ideas and enthusiasm. We will see if I can get moving when we get home to Bastrop. I will have to move a little as I'm teaching a class at the Guild on October 14. I will post about that in a separate post.
In the meantime, I sketched a bit on the patio in Chimayo. I was trying watercolor painting. I am better at the ink/watercolor sketches, but need a lot of practice.
We are in rainy Arizona today. Unusual for such a long period of steady rain.
Today I sketched on my iPad with Brushes and my fingers. I stood in the doorway as it was sprinkling.
http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1360555, Number 1 - cat. This skid steer by Mustang is generally called a bob cat. A Bob Cat is white and is the most well known brand. At any rate this is the closest thing around here to any kind of a cat. Robert is hosting the Hunt and he has a live cat named Ari that is used for many of his sketches. I think he will enjoy this substitute.
I found this good article by Jann Alexander in Austin:
More good ideas.
