I haven't been feeling inspired or motivated lately and I just don't really know what to paint. I still feel a bit winter-slow. Hopefully it will pass soon. But how do you get into the flow or how do you get yourself motivated? Sometimes I just need to paint something, even though I don't feel like it, and experiment a bit and the inspiration will come. I know that many artists, and people in general, have to feel inspired to be able to create. That's not the case for me. I can force myself to get in the zone by just starting to create something. That's exactly what I did this time.

I decided to start painting a couple of small pieces with the paint I had in the studio and try out some colour combinations and ideas, just experimenting a bit. The paintings look really different but I'm very pleased with both of them. We'll see how they dry.
