Creative block, I was talking about it the other day on my blog. I was starting things and they were not turning out the way I wanted, I just couldn't seem to get into the groove.
My son was sitting beside me painting on some warhammer 40,000 miniatures, encouraging me, chatting. I finally just decided to search the web and looked at several web sites on abstract portraits, such as Nouveau Totem and a few pages on pinterest also youtube had videos like Martina Shapiro's. I was inspired to just give it a try myself. Never really painted anything like this, but thought it couldn't be worse than being stuck, which so far has brought me to 5 layers of "paint-over" on the same small canvas. This was the final product. I like her, although at this point she doesn't have a name. I might try this again.
