Not having the motivation or energy to do art for over a month now has been really difficult. It is depressing really. I put so much of myself into my art that when I don't have that part of me dies. I'm thinking that doing the clearing of the big block in this picture is a bad idea at this time. It is boring and overwhelming. What I need to do is pick up a small block that I can carve quickly and have fun with. Working small is rejuvinating when I am down like this.
At least my Etsy sales are still pretty good. They were down for about a week or two in mid-January, but now they are up again. I'm pretty tickled about this since I am doing no promotion and am not even listing anymore yet buyers are still managing to find me. Too bad a lot of the money I have in PayPal has to go to taxes from last year. But I still have enough leftover to buy a fancy brayer if I really want to.
