I have continued working on my painting this week and have made some progress. I like to add and subtract elements in my painting until it feels complete. It is an intuitive process for the most part, but sometimes I get stuck and have to put it aside. I let it rest and think and feel where I want to go next. I also ask for help from friends when I get really stuck; or I feel like I need to make major changes, but I'm unsure. I don't have the creative process down so well that everything turns out just the way I wanted it to turn out. I make mistakes and get lost along the way and need help to continue. That is why it is a wonderful thing to have other creative people to lean on and to learn from. We are not alone. These photos will show you where this painting has gone since I last shared. Soon I'll show you even more layers and my continuing progress.
What do you do when you are stuck on a creative project? I would love to hear about your process and about projects that you have in the works.

I have a loving husband who thinks I'm a bit crazy to be so obsessed with art. I am a mother of five children from ages 21 to 5. I spend most of my time mothering and keeping house. In my free time I like to play with textiles, art journaling and painting. I have a degree in textile and apparel studies with a design focus. Right now I am more interested in fiber arts than apparel design, but I don't know where my journey will take me.
