There's not much to say about this Saturday. My brain got a bit stuck and I had to pull something out of a hat.
When I was in the Marines we used we used to call the melon on top of your shoulders a "Brain Housing Group". It's kind of like an M-16 has a stock, a firing pin assembly and a trigger housing group. Saturday, my brain housing group wasn't fully engaged.
I think I hit a bit of a wall. It was difficult to get my brain in gear.
I'm in the middle of reading a Steven King book called "Revival". I'm over halfway through the book. It keeps you going along. Moving from one page to the other doesn't take a lot of action on my part. I read a lot this weekend but I get the feeling I should have been drawing more.
Ideas are really hard to come by. I read an article the other day (okay it was quite a while back) by James Altucher where he talks about writing 10 ideas down every day. Most of them will be awful but some will be worthy of taking forward. You can be your own "Idea Machine".
I suppose I should keep a log of ten painting or drawing ideas every day - so when I come to an impasse I can get off my high horse, review my ideas and pick one for the daily drawing. Sometimes I have an idea in mind when I sit down to draw and sometimes I don't.
The trick, I guess, is not to try to figure it out too much. Just do.
It was a nice Saturday.
