th3arti5t asked: as an artist, what do you do when you get artist's block? i mean if that has ever happened to you...

It happens all the time and it can take days or months to work through. After I complete a full show, I feel so empty that I can’t even get to the studio-so I take a break and focus on everything else in my life . Often I feel blocked at the beginning of a painting- I will feel stuck or feel a lack of imagination. At that point I look at other artist’s work online, I’ll just spend hours taking in random images hoping for a spark of an idea. The only options are to either push through it when possible by making more work, or to respect that you need a break and take one because the block will always fade.
